Khabib Nurmagomedov v Justin Gaethje Latest Odds & Betting Data

Fight fans have had to wait a while for this one, but the UFC 254 mega fight between Khabib and Gaethje is nearly here. Saturday’s showdown in Abu Dhabi is highly anticipated by not just UFC fans, but sports bettors too and there’s been plenty of action on the fight with sportsbooks in the past few weeks.

The betting for the fight has been open for months and understandably Khabib is the heavy favorite to remain unbeaten. The very best odds for him are -335 (which you can currently get with DraftKings, Unibet and SugarHouse). The -335 odds imply the sportsbooks believe he has a 77% chance of winning the fight and also means you’d have to wager $335 to profit $100.

On the other hand, Justin Gaethje can be wagered at a high of +275 (best odds available at BetMGM and Borgata) which is just a 26.7% implied chance of victory. It is however, the underdog that is proving popular with bettors in the past 24 hours. We reported a week ago that bettors were siding with the favorite; the undefeated Khabib Nurmagomedov, but this has completely changed.
