It’s fight day for UFC 263, which is blasting off tonight (June 12th) from the Gila River Arena in Glendale, Arizona. There are three five-round fights on th e PPV main card portion, including Israel Adesanya vs. Marvin Vettori 2 for the middleweight strap, Deiveson Figueiredo vs. Brandon Moreno 2 for the flyweight belt, and then a scheduled 25-minute matchup between Nate Diaz and Leon Edwards. Bloody Elbow is here to provide the betting odds for these high profile fights, as well as for the rest of the UFC 263 card.
As of our midweek betting odds writeup, we learned that Adesanya is just as favored over Vettori as he was the first time they fought back in 2018. Currently, Israel is being offered up at a round -255, with Marvin in circulation at about +215. The bookies are predicting this middleweight championship bout to go the distance, but not by very much. The prop bet ‘Fight goes to decision’ is holding on to a favored line of -130, with the ‘Fight doesn’t go to decision’ barely sporting a plus line at +100.
In the co-main event, we have the UFC’s flyweight champion once again strongly favored over Brandon Moreno, but just not by as much as he was for their initial meeting back in December. Fig is on deck as a -210 betting favorite, with a +175 comeback on Moreno. Despite their first fight going the distance to a draw, the betting odds are saying that this one will be ending early. Gamblers can lay the price on the exotic wager ‘Fight doesn’t go to decision’ for a cost of -140, or take the price on ‘Fight goes to decision’ at a small underdog value of +110. If you think listening will strike twice, then there is a ‘Fight is a draw’ bet going on for a fatty dog line of +5500, with ‘Fight is not a draw’ severely probable at -13500.
The third five-round bout on the UFC 263 main card is a big time mismatch, at least on paper, between a hefty -600 betting favorite in Leon Edwards and a +450 underdog in Nate Diaz. Just like the main and co-main event, this match has also been projected to witness a finish. The betting line for ‘Fight doesn’t go to decision’ can be scooped up for a cost of -145, with ‘Fight goes to decision’ trekking around a slight underdog tick of +115. Going one step further, Edwards is expected to catch a body, and as a -600 betting favorite against an increasingly fragile Diaz he better do just that. ‘Edwards wins inside distance’ holds a minus line of -110, while ‘Diaz wins inside distance’ is at a much less likely line of +850.
