Francis Ngannou was once thought to be destined to become UFC heavyweight champion. That was until he ran into then-titleholder Stipe Miocic and then stumbled against Derrick Lewis.
Back on track following a victory over Curtis Blaydes in his last fight, Ngannou is set to welcome former UFC heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez back to the Octagon at UFC Fight Night on ESPN 1 on Sunday in Phoenix.
Velasquez is making his return following a two-and-a-half-year hiatus.
According to MMAWeekly.com odds partner MyBookie.ag, as of the time of publication, the betting line was swayed in Velasquez’s favor.
The former champion is a -160 favorite to Ngannou’s +135. That means you’d have to lay $160 down on Velasquez in order to win $100 should he come out victorious. By contract, making a $100 wager on Ngannou would net winnings of $135 if he were to upset Velasquez.
