UFC: Khabib vs Ferguson Betting Odds

This fight is officially canceled due to weight cutting issues for Khabib Nurmagomedov. Khabib went to a Las Vegas hospital the evening before the weigh-ins and was not medically cleared to fight.

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.

The Dagestanian fighter is a perfect 24-0 in his MMA career with 16 of those victories coming via stoppage. Khabib last competed in the Octagon at UFC 205 where he mauled Michael Johnson on the way to a third-round submission.

With a mastery in sambo and a black belt in judo, Khabib excels in suffocating his opponent possibly more than any other fighter in the UFC. Nurmagomedov is relentless in his pursuit of the takedown, and holds the record for most takedowns in a single match in UFC history (21), but is far from out of his element when it comes to striking. Khabib has a deadly array of punches and knees that can easily set up a T/KO victory.

Ferguson is 12-1 in the UFC and enters this fight on a nine-fight win streak. ‘El Cucuy’ is excellent at using his reach to his advantage in the standup game, but is a volume striker who likes to push the pace. He has knockout power in both hands while also demonstrating a varied arsenal on his feet. Ferguson is not just a striker as eight of his 22 career victories have come via submission. His slick movement and aggressive style put opponents in awkward positions that he capitalizes on.
