UFC featherweight champion Conor McGregor is convinced he’ll avenge March’s shocking submission loss to Nate Diaz at UFC 202. Diaz, of course, believes their highly anticipated rematch will produce the same result.
The Gambling Gods are leaning towards McGregor, but just barely.
The powers that be have pegged McGregor a slight -125 odds-on favorite to knot up the score against Diaz on August 20. Diaz, meanwhile, comes in very closely behind at -105 given what took place at UFC 196 and that the sequel will once again go down at welterweight.
It will be very interesting to see where these lines close at after the late money comes in.
UFC 202 goes down inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevda.
Here are the early wagering lines for next Saturday’s scrap:
Underdog (+) Favorite(-)
Nate Diaz -105
Conor McGregor -125
