UFC 200 Odds: Jones, Lesnar, Tate Headline Huge Betting Card

After a busy week of fights the UFC tops it all off with one of the biggest events in their history as UFC 200 invades T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on Saturday night.

The main event on a monumental fight card at UFC 200 is a Light Heavyweight unification bout between current champion Daniel Cormier and interim champion Jon Jones.

Jones enters the bout having won 13 straight fights and he’s the favorite at top sportsbook Bovada at -300. Jones last stepped into the Octagon at UFC 197 in April where he defeated Ovince Saint Preux by unanimous decision.

Cormier is a +230 underdog in the fight at Bovada. His last fight came at UFC 192 in October where he defeated Alexander Gustafsson by split decision.

Jones and Cormier previously squared off at UFC 182 back in January 2015. That fight went the distance with Jones winning by unanimous decision.

Brock Lesnar returns to the UFC for the first time in almost five years in a Heavyweight bout against Mark Hunt. Lesnar is 5-3 in his MMA career and in his last fight at UFC 141 in December 2011 he lost to Alistair Overeem by TKO. The oddsmakers must be taking Lesnar's long absence from the Octagon into account after listing him as a +140 underdog.

Hunt is 12-10-1 in his MMA career and a -170 favorite versus Lesnar. He last fought at a UFC Fight Night event in March where he defeated Frank Mir by knockout.

In the UFC women’s division Bantamweight champion Miesha Tate puts her title on the line against Amanda Nunes. Tate is heavily favored at -250 in what will be her first title defense. She last fought at UFC 196 in March where she took the title from Holly Holm with a win by submission.

Nunes also fought at UFC 196 and she recorded a win over Valentina Shevchenko by unanimous decision. She’s a +195 underdog to upset Tate at the sportsbook.

One last notable fight on the main card is a bout for the interim Featherweight title between Jose Aldo and Frankie Edgar. Both fighters have held the title before and the oddsmakers think it is a pretty even fight with Edgar at -125 and Aldo -105.

Aldo and Edgar fought at UFC 156 in 2013 where Aldo defended the Featherweight title with a win by unanimous decision.
