The Octagon’s extended hiatus doesn’t end for another 17 days, but that certainly shouldn’t stop one from examining the investment options for “UFC on FUEL TV: Gustafsson vs. Silva.” The April 14th event features a light heavyweight shootout between Alexander Gustafsson (Pictured) and Thiago Silva.
Gustafsson is nearly a 2.5-to-1 favorite to spoil Silva’s return to action after serving a year-long steroid suspension. The Brazilian, on the other hand, checks in as almost a 2-to-1 underdog to beat the hometown hero.
The only other line currently available for the show is the co-main attraction with Brian Stann and Alessio Sakara. Stann is a -375 odds-on favorite, while Sakara comes in as a +275 longshot.
Ericsson Globe Arena in Stockholm, Sweden hosts the shindig. FUEL TV will broadcast the main card live in North America at 3PM ET/12PM PT.
