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.”

kalt - Nobody is going to beat Barao anytime soon. Even if he were 100% Cruz wouldn't have been able to do it either.

Barao by TKO round 3. Faber will be 0 for 6 in title fights.
Lol at 0-6. He had a whole career before the ufc, you know? Phone Post 3.0

I'm surprised the odds makers like Barao so much. Shows he's an elite pound for pound fighter. Phone Post 3.0

Does Faber hold the record for most title fight losses in a row? If he loses to Barao this will be 6 won't it?

I'm not sure Faber wins here, but after Faber's stellar last performance, 3-1 sounds like a good underdog bet to be made.

I've got a feeling that Faber is taking this one home. This fight only being a month out might benefit Faber more than you would think. Phone Post 3.0

oddessa makes a valid point. east coast venue 3 weeks notice to fight someone who already beat you.
Faber has looked remarkable since his loss to Barao but this coudl be a tall order. I do hope he wins it because at the end of the day no one else deserves it as much as him he has been aroudn forever and he truly improved with Bang handling his striking

Can the op be any more confusing?

If faber is the under why is he -325?

How have none of you gambling degenerates noticed this yet lol?

Using between twice in a sentence twice.

flopping flip words. Was this written as part of a special needs charity project?

Faber lost 6 title fights in a row... He is bound to win one. Kinda like the Tito's position against Bader.. Will he win this one? Phone Post 3.0
