UFC 196 betting. McGregor vs. Diaz: McGregor and Holm big favorites

In less than three years Conor McGregor stormed the UFC by surprise, rushing through the card to a 7-0 record. No doubt he is looking forward at adding another win to his resume in Las Vegas this UFC 196, this time against Nate Diaz.

Bovada is giving the Irish star a -380 odds favorite in UFC’s main event this Saturday. McGregor has been undefeated since 2015, gathering 15 consecutive MMA wins since then.

It is remarkable how in order to get this fight McGregor had to go up in weight class, sacrificing his advantageous skills in height and reach. Notwithstanding this fact –he being a featherweight fighter- his striking skills are more powerful than those of Diaz, as shown by his 17 out of 19 professional wins by knockout.

Diaz on the other hand is at +290 to win, he certainly can make a name for himself and has nothing to lose by being the late replacement for Rafael dos Anjos. With a professional record of 18-10, Nate could have a sheer advantage if (or better said when) the fight goes down to the mat, putting to test McGregor’s well known defense.

If Diaz wants to have a chance he better commit to a defensive strategy, and hope that McGregor’s self-confidence draws him into making mistakes.

Let’s not forget about the other UFC event that evening, showcasing Holly Holm, who rose to the top after the unforgettable knockout over Ronda Rousey at UFC 193. She is listed as -350 favorite in his first match defending her bantamweight title against Miesha Tate, now with betting odds of +265 as underdog.

In 2013 Tate lost fights to Cat Zingano and Rousey, but since then she has won every one of her last four fights allowing her to have a chance for the title. Holm is another story, she is still undefeated holding a 10-0 professional record and seven KO’s. No doubt she has earned the title of one of the best of her class in the world; it follows that she should not have any problems defending her title, for as long as she maintains the fight on two feet, avoiding any mat rundowns.

Here are other odds for all of you UFC betting fans: Brandon Thatch (-300) vs. Siyar Bahadurzada (+230), Amanda Nunes (-135) vs. Valentina Shevchenko (+105), Corey Anderson (-300) vs. Tom Lawlor (+230), and Ilir Latifi (-200) vs Gian Villante (+160).
