Conor McGregor Opens As Significant Betting Favorite Over Nate Diaz

The betting odds are in for the new UFC 196 main event, and as expected, the champion opened up as a betting favorite over his short-notice replacement opponent.

UFC Featherweight Champion Conor McGregor opened up as a near four-to-one favorite over UFC Lightweight contender Nate Diaz, who will now be fighting McGregor in the UFC 196 main event after UFC Lightweight Champion Rafael dos Anjos pulled out of the fight with a broken foot.

Bovada oddsmaker Jimmy Shapiro set McGregor as a -350 favorite over the +260 underdog. What this means is a $350 bet on McGregor will net you $100 if he wins, while a straight $100 bet on Diaz will earn you $260 if he pulls off the upset.

UFC 196: McGregor vs. Diaz takes place next Saturday night, March 5th, from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
