UFC 226: Updated Betting Odds for Full Card

ufc226 draftkings

Getty Stipe Miocic and Francis Ngannou fought at UFC 220. Both are potential DraftKIngs picks at UFC 226.

UFC’s seventh annual International Fight Week is coming to a close, but the main event is approaching.

Capping off an event-filled week, from the 2018 UFC Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony on Thursday to The Ultimate Fighter 27 Finale on Friday, is UFC 226, live tonight from T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The event is headlined by a UFC Heavyweight Championship fight. Heavyweight champion, Stipe Miocic (18-2), coming off three straight successful title defenses – most of any heavyweight in UFC history – defends against current UFC Light Heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier (20-1, NC). The bout is being billed as a “Superfight.”

Miocic is currently the -205 betting favorite, while Cormier is the +185 underdog, as of Saturday morning.

The event also previously featured a Featherweight Championship fight between champion Max Holloway (19-3), who was on a 12-fight winning streak including nine finishes, third-longest in UFC history, against undefeated challenger Brian Ortega (14-0, NC). Holloway was pulled from the fight earlier this week due to concussion symptoms.

The event’s other featured fight is now another heavyweight bout, as Francis Ngannou (11-2), coming off a loss against Miocic at UFC 220 in Boston, Massachusetts this past January, takes on Derrick Lewis (19-5, NC). Ngannou enters the fight as the No. 1 heavyweight contender in the world, and Lewis sits at No. 5; the winner of this fight is likely in contention to receive the next heavyweight title opportunity.

UFC 226 begins live at 6:30 p.m. ET/ 3:30 p.m. PT on Fight Pass with the Preliminary Card; Prelims resume on FOX Sports 1 at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. ET, before moving to pay-per-view at 10 p.m. ET/7 p.m. PT.
