Despite a significant difference in the rankings, the eleventh UFC bantamweight, Umar Nurmagomedov, opened as a clear favorite in the upcoming fight against Cory Sandhagen, who ranks fourth in the top ten in the division.
At the moment, the coefficient for the victory of the Russian is 1.4 (probability 71.43%), while the success of the American is estimated at 2.9 (probability 34.48%).
The bookmakers released the starting odds shortly after UFC President Dana White officially confirmed the organization of the fight.
27-year-old Umar Nurmagomedov is on a four-fight streak in the UFC, knocking out Raoni Barcelos in the last fight in the first round, and 31-year-old Corey Sandhagen won two fights in a row, defeating Song Yadong by technical knockout and a split decision by Marlon Vera.
Recall that the Russian-American confrontation on August 5 will head the UFC Fight Night 225 tournament in Nashville.
