This Saturday (March 5th), UFC 272 will take place in the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. Colby Covington, the UFC’s 1 welterweight, faces up with Jorge Masvidal, a former buddy, teammate, and the promotion’s 6 ranked 170-pounder, in a classic grudge match atop the PPV main event. However, before we do that, let’s take a look at the betting odds for this bad blood showdown.

The oddsmakers are heavily favoring Covington in this fight, which isn’t surprising given that champ Kamaru Usman appears to be the only man who can beat Colby right now. The moneyline for Covington is around -320, with a +250 return for Masvidal.

Jorge hasn’t won a fight since capturing the BMF belt in a fight with Nate Diaz at UFC 244 in 2019, but to be fair, he’s only fought twice and lost both times to Usman. Masvidal has proved to be lethal, but against Covington’s suffocating approach, it’s difficult to see him finding the space he needs to do damage. These numbers add up.
