On July 7 UFC 226 will take place from T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas with featherweight and heavyweight championship bouts headlining the card. If you like the underdog picks in those title fights, you could really cash in at the sportsbooks if the challengers win.
The major sportsbooks aren’t expecting belts to change hands at UFC 226, Max Holloway is favored to retain his featherweight title against Brian Ortega in the co-main event while Stipe Miocic is expected to hold onto his title against Daniel Cormier in the headliner.
If you are confident that Holloway will keep his belt and want to wager on the blessed one, here are some offshore betting sites to choose from based on the juiciest bonuses and personal ratings from user experiences. The pair are currently at -200 at BetOnline and Bovada, and -210 at 888Sport.
Meanwhile, heavyweight champ Miocic is even bigger chalk against challenger/light heavyweight champion Cormier, ranging from -260 (Bovada) to -270 (BetOnline), all the way to -286 (888Sport).
Remember though Ortega is unbeaten in his career at 14-0, and while Cormier is moving up to heavyweight for this fight, he is unbeaten in that weight class and is the former Strikeforce heavyweight grand prix champion. Despite the odds, it’s quite possible both belts could change hands at UFC 226.
