UFC 249 Odds: Ferguson vs. Gaethje

UFC 249 Odds from Las Vegas

We have a date. We have a location. After weeks of speculation, it looks like mixed martial arts will be the first sport to return to action in the US. Tony Ferguson is holding steady as a -190 favorite over Justin Gaethje for their interim lightweight title at William Hill. Ferguson was supposed to fight Khabib Nurmagomedov, but the current champ couldn’t navigate international travel restrictions. Despite a three-year layoff, Dominick Cruz is attracting 74-percent of tickets and 87-percent of dollars wagered in his comeback fight against Henry Cejudo.
