God bless Frankie Edgar. Instead of sitting on the sidelines and waiting patiently for his title shot against Max Holloway – that was probably what 99 percent of fighters could have done – that the former lightweight champ is electing to remain on this Saturday’s UFC 222 card at Las Vegas. Not only is he denying his name shot, but he’s meeting possibly the hottest fighter in the division, the undefeated Brian Ortega.
Cruising the messageboards, I’ve seen a great deal of fan love for Edgar for being a”real” fighter. It is hard not to agree, especially when you’ve got guys like Tyron Woodley who sat out for a year and a half to receive his chance at the strap. Let’s not forget just how much more a fighter stands to create not just in a title fight, but also in sponsorship opportunities as the winner. However, Edgar has always been a competitor, and in his own words, he”was sick of not fighting”.
So we’ve got one of the division’s most experienced scrappers fulfilling among it’s most reckless BJJ players. How should you bet this battle? Let’s take a peek at the UFC odds at BookMaker.eu, break down the matchup and go over your best betting options.
UFC Odds at BookMaker.eu
Brian Ortega +170
Frankie Edgar -215
Fight goes/doesn’t move to conclusion -230/+170
Odds Analysis
Edgar started as more than a 2-1 favorite, and his cash line has hovered around the -200 into -215 range. Ortega can be found anywhere from +150 to +170. Oddsmakers are providing Edgar a ton of respect, despite Ortega stealing the show with a beastly win over Cub Swanson in his last outing.
I’d expect a flood of late bets on Ortega, as his possible is too tantalizing to ignore. It is impossible to not think you’re taking a look at a future winner when you watch him fight. Although Edgar is undoubtedly the best opponent’s he is faced,”The Answer” is also 36 plus a bit past his prime.
Matchup Analysis
There is a noticeable size difference between the two. Although Edgar is a former lightweight, he’s a tiny enough 145er that there’s been rumblings of him falling down to bantamweight. By comparison, Ortega is a huge featherweight who must cut considerable pounds to make the limit. Against Swanson, who is by no means small, Ortega looked like he had been at another weight class.
But Frankie’s made a career out of beating larger dudes. His skillset is extremely well-rounded, and it begins with elite footwork and wrestling. On the feet, Frankie is in perpetual movement, moving in and out, side to side, into range and slipping out while peppering competitions with head-body hitting combinations. The guy wouldn’t be out of place within a squared circle.
