Robbie Lawler vs Neil Magny odds
Ohmbet have now released odds for the bout, with the former champion as the underdog at 2.20, whereas Magny sits as a slight favourite at 1.65. One of the reasons for this may be the fact that Lawler currently sits on a three fight losing streak, albeit his submission loss to Ben Askren was controversial to say the least. He has also lost four out of his last five fights, with a decision win over Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone his only win since 2016.
Magny on the other hand has remained one of the welterweight division’s dark horses, silently building up a strong record in the UFC. He has won four out of his last five fights, and holds a two fight winning streak. The only loss among his five recent fights is a TKO to Argentinian Santiago Ponzinibbio. In his latest outing he defeated Li Jingliang via decision.
