Breaking: Gaethje favourite over “Cowboy”, “OSP” MASSIVE underdog!
Two big fights were recently announced that are sure to deliver entertainment for the fans. The most notable is the lightweight match up between fan favourites Justin Gaethje and Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone at UFC Vancouver, which is already now a contender for “Fight of the Year”. Veteran Ovince Saint Preux and Polish prospect Michal Oleksiejczuk have also been booked in a light heavyweight showdown at UFC Copenhagen on September 28th. Ohmbet have now released betting lines for these fights – and the odds are well worth taking a look at.
Justin Gaethje vs “Cowboy” Cerrone & OSP vs Michal Oleksiejczuk betting lines
While closer than the next odds, Gaethje comes out as a betting favourite at 1.69 whereas “Cowboy” comes out as a slight underdog at 2.08. Both fighters are crowd pleasers, perhaps at times at a cost to themselves, not shying away from getting into harms way in search of a good scrap.
Gaethje is coming off of two straight, brutal knockouts over James Vick and Edson Barboza. Cerrone recently lost via TKO due to doctor stoppage against former interim champ Tony Ferguson. That loss snapped a three fight winning streak, with two finishes.
“OSP”, however, comes out ass a heavy underdog. Despite going five rounds with light heavyweight champion and pound-for-pound great Jon Jones, Saint Preux is not inspiring confidence with the odds makers. He has lost three out of his last four bouts, two of those losses coming via submission. This is reflected in the odds as he stands at 3.00, with a win tripling the original bet. Oleksiejczuk is undefeated in the UFC, sitting at 1.69 with two straight knockout wins, both coming in at under the two minute mark.
