Conor McGregor (pictured) might have the “interim” label at the front of his moniker, but that don’t mean jack to the Gambling Gods. Apparently, neither does the fact reigning UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo is perfect through his past 18 fights, with the last nine being of the title defense variety (two in the WEC before getting promoted to the UFC).
Now that it has been officially announced that the most anticipated title unification bout in UFC history will go down December 12 at UFC 194, it’s time to start talking odds.
McGregor is nearly a 2-1 odds-on favorite to hand Aldo his first defeat since 2005. Aldo, meanwhile, checks in as a +155 underdog.
It will be very interesting to see how these lines moves as showtime approaches.
