UFC 209 is undoubtedly the biggest UFC event so far in 2017. The main event features a rematch between Tyron Woodley and Stephen Thompson after their UFC 205 welterweight title bout ended in a draw. The co-main is an MMA fan’s dream, as Tony Ferguson and Khabib Nurmagomedov square off for the interim lightweight belt.
The rest of the card features plenty of name value (Alistair Overeem, Rashad Evans) and intriguing prospects (Lando Vannata, Mirsad Bektic).
You can ask anyone “who is the greatest MMA fighter ever” and you will likely hear the same names, one of which is Georges St-Pierre. GSP has one of the most diverse tool sets in MMA history and when you pair that with some of the best cardio we’ve ever seen, you get a nearly unstoppable force.
Galera do mundo das lutas, o UFC 209, que acontece neste sábado, em Las Vegas (EUA), promete fortes emoções.

Liderado pelos confrontos entre Tyron Woodley e Stephen Thompson, e Khabib Nurmagomedov e Tony Ferguson, o evento apresenta odds interessantes, que rendem lucros de até 450% nas "apostas comparativas" e 600% nos investimentos feitos via "método de vitória".
After competing in the most entertaining draw in recent history, Tyron Woodley and Stephen Thompson are set to square off once again for the UFC welterweight title. Woodley and Wonderboy had an intense five-round affair that ended up winning Fight of the Night at UFC 205, the UFC’s first card in Madison Square Garden.
After over a year of waiting and several canceled fights, Khabib Nurmagomedov and Tony Ferguson are officially scheduled to meet at UFC 209 in March for the interim lightweight title. They were originally scheduled to fight on two previous occasions, but injuries to both fighters scrapped the bouts.
Bovada opened Khabib as the -175 favorite with Ferguson coming back at +145.

MMA and the UFC in particular is quickly becoming one of the most popular sports to wager on, but unlike traditional team sports, it lacks the in-depth betting stats and trends for bettors to use to properly handicap a fight. This puts bettors at a significant disadvantage, especially with the high volume of events the UFC puts on featuring fighters that the casual fan isn’t familiar with.
2016 featured plenty of eye-opening upsets in the UFC. We witnessed Bryan Barberena decimate the Sage Northcutt hype train and Michael Bisping shocking the world by finally winning UFC gold over Luke Rockhold. However, when all was said and done, dogs went just 179-307 through the 2016 calendar. Underdogs won at a rate of 36.8%, which is a slight decrease from the 38.5 percent they posted in 2015.
After what seems like an eternity, Georges St-Pierre appears to be returning to the UFC. Reports surfaced on February 15 that GSP and the UFC are close to finalizing a multi-fight deal that would see the former welterweight champion return to the Octagon for the first time in over three years. Just two days later, news broke that GSP was officially on his way back to the UFC.
