UFC 192: Does Bader Offer Any Value?

Rashad Evans makes his long awaited return to the octagon at UFC 192, but will not have an easy road back as he faces off against top contender Ryan Bader. Despite a nearly two year layoff, Evans is currently the favorite according to 5Dimes.

“The betting line is a direct reflection of Evans' layoff, which dates to UFC 167 in November of 2013, but I also think it speaks to Bader's improvements as a fighter, both technically and athletically,” Anik explains.

Bader enters UFC 192 on a four-fight winning streak, including an impressive and gutsy performance against Phil Davis in January.

However, Anik is unsure if there is value in the fight.

“When the line opened, I immediately saw value on Bader because he was close to +200. Now, seeing Rashad in that -160 range is somewhat enticing,” Anik says. “I still think he has the speed and power advantage against Bader, but it's hard to know what you're [going to] get, given the injury history and the layoff.”

“So ultimately, this is a competitive fight one I wouldn't touch because the value has gone away from Bader.”
