What are the UFC odds and betting lines this weekend?

The UFC returns this weekend with a highly anticipated rematch between current Lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov and former challenger Justin Gaethje. The two will meet in the main event of UFC 254, which takes place on Saturday, October 24 at Flash Forum on Yas Island in Abu Dhabi. The bout will be streamed live on ESPN+ pay-per-view.

Nurmagomedov (-330) enters the bout as a heavy favorite over Gaethje (+260), who stepped in on short notice to replace Tony Ferguson as the Russian’s opponent. The oddsmakers are clearly not giving Gaethje much of a chance to pull off the upset, but “The Highlight” has been on an impressive run lately, winning his last four fights by knockout or submission.

In the co-main event, Robert Whittaker will put his Middleweight title on the line against Jared Cannonier. Cannonier is a slight underdog (+145) against Whittaker (-165), who is coming off a split decision win over Darren Till earlier this year.

Here are the full betting lines for UFC 254:

Main card (ESPN+ pay-per-view)
Khabib Nurmagomedov (-330) vs. Justin Gaethje (+260)
