Full UFC 220 Opening Odds


The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) kicks off 2018 with its first pay-per-view next weekend (Jan. 20, 2018) with UFC 220 in Boston, Massachusetts. The event features not one, but two title fights as the heavyweight and light heavyweight championships will be defended.

In the main event, UFC Heavyweight Champion Stipe Miocic puts his belt on the line against surging contender Francis Ngannou. Combined, both men have finished eight straight men in the first round. This one could get violent in a hurry.

UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Daniel Cormier will defend his title in the co-main event when he battles Volkan Oezdemir. Cormier had his belt returned after his title loss to Jon Jones was turned into a no contest after Jones failed his drug test last year. Oezdemir presents a stiff challenge due to his power, which helped him earn contender status quickly with sub-one minute finishes of Misha Cirkunov and Jimi Manuwa on his way to going 3-0 in the UFC in 2017.

While those two fights already have betting odds, the remaining 10 fights on the card do not.

In bantamweight action, Thomas Almeida takes on Rob Font as both talented strikers look to bounce back from disappointing losses to solid contenders. Almeida lost a decision to rising star Jimmy Rivera in his last fight while Font was submitted by the surging Pedro Munhoz. Both men are capable of highlight-reel knockouts, so don't blink.

In a featherweight contest, Calvin Kattar takes on Shane Burgos in a battle of intriguing prospects on the main card. Kattar impressed in his UFC debut last year against Andre Fili and the hometown Boston fighter will have a tremendous amount of crowd support in this contest. Burgos has looked rock solid thus far in his UFC stint, earning three victories in his first three UFC fights, including a knockout of Charles Rosa and most recently, a decision win against Godofredo Pepey.

Also on tap, a flyweight bout features two top 15 performers as Dustin Ortiz battles Alexandre Pantoja. Ortiz looked amazing in his last contest, quickly finishing Hector Sandoval via first minute knockout, but he'll have his hands full with Pantoja, who was the top-seeded fighter on the TUF Champions season that decided a title challenger for Demetrious Johnson. Pantoja didn't win the show, but he has looked extremely sharp since debuting with the UFC, going 2-0 and recently submitting Neil Seery.
