UFC 261 Odds: Bet $5, Win $150 at Fanduel on Either Kamaru Usman or Jorge Masvidal
UFC 261 Odds: Get 30/1 Odds at Fanduel on Either Kamaru Usman or Jorge Masvidal
The day we’ve all been waiting for is finally here. UFC 261 is tonight, and more importantly Kamaru Usman vs. Jorge Masvidal II, the main event, is just a few hours away.
The best part about Saturday’s main event is that the sportsbooks are rolling out the red carpet and our friends at FanDuel are no exception. Right now, they’re giving new users +3000 odds on either Usman or Masvidal, whoever you want to pick.
That’s right. You pick the fighter and get 30/1 odds at FanDuel, no matter what.
The last time these two fighters met, Masvidal took the fight on short notice after Gilbert Burns tested positive for COVID-19. This time around, Masvidal has been scheduled to fight Usman the entire time, so we should see a much more prepared fighter.
The history here is deep. Usman claims that he “breaks the will” of every fighter he faces, but has acknowledged that wasn’t the case the first time he took on Masvidal. So, this time around he’s set out to do just that.
As for Masvidal, the loss to Usman has not sat well with him, and he’s ready for revenge as the underdog.
Either way, all you need to do is pick a winner and turn $5 into $150 with FanDuel during Saturday’s UFC 261 main event.

UFC 261: Usman vs. Masvidal II Odds
You’ll have difficulty finding better odds than FanDuel’s +3000 for Usman vs. Masvidal II. As a matter of fact, we can guarantee you won.
