For his chance to become the undisputed UFC bantamweight champion, Renan Barao will be a 3-1 favorite heading into a rematch with Urijah Faber at UFC 170:
Veteran oddsmaker Joey Oddessa (@MMAOdds) on Monday told MMAjunkie that Barao will open as more than a 3-to-1 favorite in the fight, which is a rematch from the pair’s interim title fight at UFC 149 about 18 months ago. Oddessa set the line at -325 for Faber, which is up from the first time the two fought, when Barao closed between -140 and -210 between online sportsbooks and casinos.
Oddessa said the short notice won’t work in Faber’s favor.
“You figure short notice and East Coast venue, and we’re looking at a repeat of first the bout,” Oddessa said. “Barao may not lose a round and exit 32-1 when the dust settles.”
