Odds released for potential Nurmagomedov vs McGregor rematch

MMA oddsmaker Nick Kalikas is offering odds via BetDSI on the hypothetical rematch between Conor McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov, and the favorite from the first fight is even bigger chalk in the potential Part II. 
Nurmagomedov closed as a -200 favorite Saturday night while McGregor was a +170 underdog. The opening odds for the megafight on August 3 at BetDSI were Nurmagomedov -185, McGregor +155. 
The betting public hammered McGregor at plus-money and there were three times as many tickets written on the underdog, but many professional bettors wagered on Nurmagomedov, which drove the odds north ahead of fight time. 
Nurmagomedov's lowest odds during the lead-up time to UFC 229 were -160 (McGregor +130). 
McGregor vs. Nurmagomedov II (fight must occur in 2019 for action)
Conor McGregor +200
Khabib Nurmagomedov -250
