UFC: Nelson vs Lewis Betting Odds

If you are looking for two big men to step inside the Octagon and throw bombs, then you will love watching Roy Nelson and Derrick Lewis do battle during International Fight Week. ‘Big Country’ has 13 career victories by way of TKO/KO while ‘The Black Beast’ has recorded 14 wins via knockout.

With both men being one punch away from victory, Nelson has opened as a -145 favorite with Lewis coming back at +115 per Bovada.

Nelson is basically a one-trick pony, but it is one impressive pony. Nelson’s enter standup game is built around trying to land his massive overhand right – that has proven to be able to knock out almost anyone. ‘Big Country’ also has an iron chin with the only two people to ever knock him out being Mark Hunt and Andrei Arlovski – with the Arlovski KO coming way back in 2008.

Lewis is a terrifying specimen of a human being who has won his past two bouts by KO in the first round. He is a massive human being who throws each and every punch with the intent of taking his opponent's head off.

Long and short – don’t expect a drawn-out technical battle in this one.
