The Bantamweight Title is on the line at UFC 227 and Cody Garbrandt has the edge with punters in early betting, as he looks to defeat arch enemy TJ Dillashaw and reclaim the belt.
Despite heading into the bout as the $1.90 outsider, Garbrandt is seeing 55 percent of the support to right his wrongs and have the belt strapped around his waist again.
There is plenty of bad blood between these two men and the tension only continues to rise. Once teammates, now enemies, they first locked horns in the octagon at UFC 217. Dillashaw knocked out Garbrandt in the second round to become to new champion.
It is Garbrandt’s only loss to date in 13 fights. He is two inches taller than Dillashaw but concedes his advantage in reach where the latter has nearly three inches on him.
Both men are predicting to knock each other out on Sunday. Dillashaw by Knockout ($2.75) and Garbrandt by Knockout ($2.50) are seeing great support in the Method Of Victory market and Garbrandt on points has also seen some specking if it was to go the distance.
In what should be a cracking fight, we are tipping Garbrandt will get a bit of payback and extend his record to 12-1-0.
Tip: Garbrandt by KO
