This week’s UFC Fight Night was supposed to be headlined by Holy Holm vs. Irena Aldana, but with the cancellation of that bout it’ll be Derek Brunson and Edmen Shahbazyan going head to head.

It’ll be a rare three-round main event due to the short notice following the cancellation, with bettors and bookmakers backing Shahbazyan to stay undefeated.

As of Saturday afternoon, Shahbazyan’s best odds are -310, but he’s as short as -405 in some places. His -310 odds imply a 75.6% chance of winning.

According to DraftKings, an overwhelming 84% bets are on Edmen Shahbazyan to win, while he owns 82% handle.

Brunson’s best odds to win, as of Saturday, sit at +275, implying just a 26.7% chance he pulls off the upset.

Shahbazyan is unbeaten in 11 professional fights, including a 3-0 record in the UFC. Brunson is 4-4 in his last eight fights with a 20-7 record overall.
