UFC Lightweight Champion Khabib Nurmagomedov put a beating on Conor McGregor on Saturday at UFC 229, eventually getting the tap in Round 4. And, with the post-fight ‘festivities’ that kicked off, it is almost certain the two men will fight again (preferably in the cage). So, not surprisingly, the bookmakers have already started taking bets on the outcome of the rematch.
The champ has opened as a considerable -275 favorite to win once again, meaning he is expected to win this fight 73% of the time. At the start of the fight on Saturday night, Khabib closed as a -200 favorite.
