UFC 218: Holloway vs Edgar Betting Odds

Max Holloway proved that the future is now when he defeated Jose Aldo in emphatic fashion to claim the UFC featherweight title. Now “Blessed” is set to make his first title defense when he takes on Frankie Edgar at UFC 218 in Detroit, Michigan.

Holloway is on the board as a -210 favorite with Edgar coming back at +170.

Holloway is riding an 11-fight winning streak – in one of the most talent-laden divisions in the UFC – with eight of those coming via stoppage. The Hawaiian possesses incredible footwork that allows him to cut angles and be aggressive in the standup game. Holloway will generally want to pressure his opponent against the cage and unleash big combos. His defensive wrestling is elite with no opponent taking him down in his past eight fights.

Like his opponent, Edgar’s game plan revolves around his footwork. When striking, the former lightweight champion excels at jumping in and out of the pocket. This also allows him to hide his takedown attempts, which is where Edgar really shines. His wrestling skills and relentless motor make him a dangerous opponent once he gets a grip on his adversary.
