UFC 276: Adesanya, Volkanovski Favored by the Oddsmakers

  • UFC recently revealed the lineup for the UFC 276.
  • The headliner is the middleweight title clash between Israel Adesanya and Jared Cannonier. 
  • The featherweight title bout between Alexander Volkanovski and Max Holloway serves as the co-main event.

The lineup for the UFC 276 main card was officially confirmed a few days ago, and the MMA fans are thrilled with the battles that take place at T-Mobile Arena, Las Vegas, on July 2. 

Two title bouts are on the menu. Israel Adesanya defends his middleweight crown against Jared Cannonier, while Alexander Volkanovski and Max Holloway close the trilogy in the contest for the featherweight throne.

Champions Favorites to Defend Their Titles

The Last Stylebender successfully recovered from the loss against Jan Blachowicz, with back-to-back unanimous decision wins against Marvin Vettori and Robert Whittaker. Adesanya (22-1 MMA, 11-1 UFC) now meets Jared Cannonier (15-5 MMA, 8-5 UFC), who is in excellent shape, winning five of his last six bouts and earning the chance to fight for the belt. 

Israel Adesanya-330
Jared Cannonier+280

The second title bout is between the reigning featherweight champion, Alexander Volkanovski (24-1 MMA, 11-0 UFC), and the former, Max Holloway (23-6 MMA, 19-6 UFC). The two met already twice, and on both occasions, the Aussie got out as the winner. 

Only, the second fight ended with a split decision, a highly controversial for many, as there was the overall impression in the MMA community that Volkanovski didn’t deserve to win. 

Alexander Volkanovski-195
Max Holloway+160

UFC 276 is Stacked

Besides the headliner, we have three more middleweight meetings at the UFC 276. The most interesting should be between Sean Strickland, who is a rising force in the division, and Alex Pereira, a new face in the UFC, but a guy with massive combat sports experience. Formerly a kickboxer, Pereira holds numerous accolades and is the guy who beat Adesanya twice in the ring, once knocking out cold the Last Stylebender.

Sean Strickland+105
Alex Pereira-125

Veteran Uriah Hall faces Andre Muniz, while Brad Tavares takes on the South African, Dricus du Plessis. All these bouts could have a major impact on the rankings and further implications for the division’s future. 

Uriah Hall+210
Andre Muniz-245

Robbie Lawler is back into the ring following his win over Nick Diaz. The former welterweight champ meets Bryan Barbarena. Even with the age of 40 and just one victory in the past five events, Lawler isn’t giving up. 

Robbie Lawler-115
Bryan Barbarena-105

Sean O’Malley continues his quest in the bantamweight division against one respectable name – Pedro Munhoz. After his vicious loss to Marlon Vera, O’Malley bounced back with three wins in a row, and this is his second big test in the organization.

Sean O’Malley-255
Pedro Munhoz+215

The first is between Jessica Eye and Maycee Barber, while the second includes Lauren Murphy and the former UFC bantamweight champion, Miesha Tate.
