UFC: 2016 Underdogs vs Favorites Record

Click here for 2017's article.

2015 was a historic year for upsets in the UFC. Seven titles changed hands during the year, and no upset was bigger than Holly Holm’s over the once-invincible Ronda Rousey. For the year, underdogs posted a 180-288 record vs favorites, earning the W in 38.5% of fights. Will 2016 once again be a big year for the underdog, or will the favorites simply do what they’re supposed to do?

After each UFC event, OddsShark will update the year-to-date underdogs vs favorites record using the closing lines for each fight, as well as the records for each event with the biggest upset on each card. We'll also take a look at how profitable underdogs are based on a $100 bet on every underdog on every card.

Here’s how things stack up so far this year:
