Jorge Masvidal Opened Betting Favorite Over Conor Mcgregor
UFC welterweight contender Jorge Masvidal is riding high after the destruction of Ben Askren via flying knee in just 5 seconds into round one at UFC 239. Following his win ‘Gamebred’ took aim at Conor Mcgregor in a vicious manner. Masvidal not only calls for a potential fight with Irishman but also claims to break his face.
“I want McGregor,” Masvidal said. “I want to break his face. I think that’s an easy paycheck.”
Conor Mcgregor hasn’t responded to Masvidal’s call out but oddsmaker already put out bettings lines for a potential showdown between ‘Gamebred’ and Mcgregor. It seems Bestfightodds gave Masvidal edge over Mcgregor.
“Future Events: Conor McGregor (+140) vs. Jorge Masvidal (-160)”

Previously ‘Notorious’ opened as an underdog against Dustin Poirier, Chad Mendes, and Khabib Nurmagomedov.
It’s unclear whether those odds are for welterweight bout or lightweight considering the fact Mcgregor and Masvidal had fought in both divisions.
Do you agree with the odds? Do you think Masvidal has an edge in this fight over Mcgregor?
