Adesanya vs. Vettori Odds: 83% Of Bettors Picking Vettori To Win

Israel Adesanya isn’t just some run-of-the-mill UFC champion. Sure, he is the middleweight champion of the world, but he’s also the fourth ranked pound-for-pound fighter in the entire company and was unbeaten until he tried to make an insanely ambitious jump to light heavyweight in order to become the double champ.

Sure, Adesanya lost his last fight. But it was in a weight class up from where he came through the ranks and against another champion. So, as Adesanya gets ready to face Marvin Vettori for the second time in his career, it’s no surprise that Adesanya vs. Vettori odds have the champion as the overwhelming favorite.

Adesanya possesses a unique style in the ring. He isn’t a massive, muscle-bound figure, but he’s a punishing striker nonetheless. His length and kickboxing ability lets him hit opponents from odd angles using techniques that catch them off guard.

“The Stylebender”, as he’s known, is truly one of a kind. And he’s loved by most UFC fans as a breath of fresh air. That’s why it’s truly a shock to see that almost 85% of the betting on Adesany avs. Vettori odds are backing Vettori to pull off a massive upset at UFC 263 on Saturday.

Adesanya vs. Vettori Odds

As I mentioned previously, Israel Adesanya and Marvin Vettori have met in the octagon once before, and the UFC 263 Adesanya vs. Vettori odds reflect that win by The Stylebender. But, even that win by the middleweight champ has been contested by Vettori.

Still, just a few days before their second fight, Adesanya vs. Vettori odds have Israel Adesanya as a -260 favorite to win and stay unbeaten as a middleweight. At -260, his implied probability is 72.2%.

Vettori comes in having won five straight fights, but none of his opponents have been of the same class as Adesanya. Vettori vs. Adesanya odds have Marvin Vettori at +225 to win the fight.

We mentioned that Vettori contests that he won the original fight, even though it happened over three years ago and it was fairly obvious to everyone that watched that Adesanya won. Still, his persistence in claiming he was robbed in their first meeting has only made Adesanya vs. Vettori 2 that much more interesting.

Adesanya, who has made light work of the rest of the middleweight division, seems to be motivated to end Vettori in style this time rather than letting it go the distance, and I wouldn’t bet against the champ doing just that.

Fighter UFC 263 Odds Implied Probability
Israel Adesanya -260 72.2%
Marvin Vettori +225 30.8%
