UFC 263 odds for title fights
Israel Adesanya vs Marvin Vettori 2 Odds
Israel Adesanya will make the third defense of his middleweight title as a -250 favorite but is fresh off the first defeat of his career when he jumped up in weight class to unsuccessfully challenge 205-pound champ Jan Blachowicz in March.
Prior to that loss, the Last Stylebender had gone 20-0 in his MMA career, including a 9-0 record in the octagon. With a background as a professional kickboxer, Adesanya is an extremely precise striker with fantastic movement and technique.
Marvin "The Italian Dream" Vettori lost by split decision to Adesanya when these two middleweights faced off against each other back in 2018. Since then, the 27-year-old has been on a heater, winning five fights in a row, most recently a unanimous decision victory over Kevin Holland in April.
Deiveson Figueiredo vs Brandon Moreno 2 Odds
Despite battling to a draw as a +250 underdog in his first title challenge, Moreno will once again be a moderate underdog at +205 for his rematch against Figueiredo.
The first matchup at UFC 256 was one of the best fights of the year and was extremely close with Figueiredo owning a slim 137-132 edge in significant strikes but Moreno having the advantage in takedowns and control time.
Prior to the draw in December, "The Assassin Baby" Moreno had gone 4-0-1 in his previous five fights. The champ Figueiredo is 9-1-1 at the UFC level with seven of his nine wins coming via finishes.
