UFC Bantamweight Demetrious Johnson

Now that the rematch between Demetrious Johnson (Pictured) and Ian McCall has finally found a home, let’s take a look at what the Gambling Gods believe will happen in the June 8th sequel.

“Mighty Mouse” is pegged as a slight -155 odds-on favorite to advance to the flyweight tournament final against Joseph Benavidez. McCall, meanwhile, checks in just barely behind as a +115 underdog.

Johnson was initially awarded with a controversial decision win last month, but the verdict was subsequently overturned to a majority draw after a miscalculation on one judge’s scorecard was brought to light.

BankAtlantic Center in Fort Lauderdale, Florida hosts the shindig.

FX will broadcast the card’s main bouts live at 9PM ET/6PM PT.
