Alexander Volkanovski’s odds against Islam Makhachev are +280, which only gives him a 26.3% chance of winning the lightweight championship. Volkanovski is moving up in weight, but it’s strange to see him as such a sizable underdog, considering that he’s the top fighter in the organization pound-for-pound and hasn’t lost since 2013.
Makhachev has a 78% chance of winning and keeping his title based on his -355 odds. To win the belt, Makhachev recently fought Charles Oliveira in the octagon. Despite being one of the best young fighters in the world, he has never faced a competitor with Volkanovski’s talent and versatility.
