UFC Jose Aldo

Chad Mendes is convinced he has the arsenal to dethrone the only featherweight champion the UFC has ever known. The Gambling Gods think differently.

The powers that be have pegged Jose Aldo (pictured) nearly a 2.5-1 odds-on favorite to retain his title at UFC 179. Mendes, meanwhile, checks in as almost a 2-1 underdog.

It will be interesting to see how these lines move as showtime approaches. Will the late money be going on “Money”?

UFC 179 takes place October 25 inside Maracanazinho Gymnasium in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Here are the available wagering lines for UFC 179:
