While the middleweight championship is on the line at UFC 276, the next bout for the winner of the title might be the winner of another main card matchup between Sean Strickland vs. Alex Pereira on Saturday night in Las Vegas.
Strickland (25-3) is ranked No. 4 at middleweight, and despite a controversial past he’s proven to be a fighter capable of winning at the highest levels of the sport. Pereira is just 5-1 in MMA, but the former kickboxing champion will have the opportunity of a lifetime in this bout that was originally scheduled for UFC 277, but was moved up to help fill the card.
Here are the latest odds from DraftKings Sportsbook from the bout, and we’ll update this article with live round-by-round scoring as a winner is determined.
