If you’re still teetering on whether or not to drop $54.95 on UFC 173, just keep in mind that the show’s two featured bouts won’t even be close – that is, if you were to ask the Gambling Gods.
Bantamweight champion Renan Barao (pictured) defends his throne against TJ Dillashaw in the pay-per-view’s main event.
Barao is a whopping 8-1 odds-on favorite to steamroll the Team Alpha Male-trained fighter. Dillashaw, meanwhile, checks in as a 5-1 longshot.
If you think that’s a lopsided line, Daniel Cormier is a 9-1 favorite to blast Dan Henderson in the co-featured attraction. Henderson is pegged as a 5.5-1 underdog.
The three other scraps on the main card are expected to be far more competitive.
UFC 173 goes down inside MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
