UFC 226: Updated Betting Odds for Full Card

UFC’s seventh annual International Fight Week is coming to a close, but the main event is approaching.

Capping off an event-filled week, from the 2018 UFC Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony on Thursday to The Ultimate Fighter 27 Finale on Friday, is UFC 226, live tonight from T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The event is headlined by a UFC Heavyweight Championship fight. Heavyweight champion, Stipe Miocic (18-2), coming off three straight successful title defenses – most of any heavyweight in UFC history – defends against current UFC Light Heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier (20-1, NC). The bout is being billed as a “Superfight.”

Miocic is currently the -205 betting favorite, while Cormier is the +185 underdog, as of Saturday morning.

The event also previously featured a Featherweight Championship fight between champion Max Holloway (19-3), who was on a 12-fight winning streak including nine finishes, third-longest in UFC history, against undefeated challenger Brian Ortega (14-0, NC). Holloway was pulled from the fight earlier this week due to concussion symptoms.

The event’s other featured fight is now another heavyweight bout, as Francis Ngannou (11-2), coming off a loss against Miocic at UFC 220 in Boston, Massachusetts this past January, takes on Derrick Lewis (19-5, NC). Ngannou enters the fight as the No. 1 heavyweight contender in the world, and Lewis sits at No. 5; the winner of this fight is likely in contention to receive the next heavyweight title opportunity.

UFC 226 begins live at 6:30 p.m. ET/ 3:30 p.m. PT on Fight Pass with the Preliminary Card; Prelims resume on FOX Sports 1 at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. ET, before moving to pay-per-view at 10 p.m. ET/7 p.m. PT.
