UFC 273 Fight Card, Odds
Caesars Sportsbook has Volkanovski as a heavy favorite against Jung with money line odds of -750, as of writing. Volkanovski was originally scheduled to duke it out with Max Holloway, but Holloway dropped out due to an injury. But, even as one of the best featherweights ever, Volkanovski may encounter difficulty in the Zombie’s unpredictability.
Between bantamweights Aljamain Sterling and Petr Yan, Caesars chooses Yan as a favorite with current odds of -450. This is a rare instance of the reigning champ being the underdog, making things all the more exciting.
Dual title fights aside, there’s still plenty of much-anticipated fighting to look forward to at UFC 273. Gilbert Burns is set to fight Khamzat Chimaev in a welterweight matchup, Ian Garry is taking on Darian Weeks, and Aspen Ladd will clash with Raquel Pennington, among other matchups.
