UFC 241 is all set to take place in a little over a week from now and there’s excitement all over the world! Fans of UFC have been keeping a close eye on what’s going on with the fighters and are also looking forward to cheering for their favorites on the 17th of August. However, let us take a closer look at the winning odds in the two big fights: Cormier vs Miocic 2 and Diaz vs Pettis.
Winning odds are betting odds based indicators of which of the two fighters in the fight is expected to win. A negative number shows a higher probability of winning.
DC Stipe is by far the 3rd most anticipated fight after Nate Pettis and Romero Costa #UFC241

Winning Odds for Daniel Cormier vs Stipe Miocic 2
As of this writing, Daniel Cormier ‘DC’ is being favored over Stipe Miocic by a huge majority. The current betting odds are -145/+115 in the favor of DC. The two faced off against each other at UFC 226 last year where DC had won by knocking out Miocic.
Even in the second encounter between Daniel Cormier vs Stipe Miocic, DC appears to be leading already and is expected to win again.
I've been avoiding this fight in my mind for so long because Stipe is my favorite heavyweight, I really don't see Stipe beating DC I didn't see it the first time don't see it now, but if Stipe loses where does he go from here ? Wait until DC retires?#UFC241

Winning Odds for Nate Diaz vs Anthony Pettis
Nate Diaz is returning to the UFC after 3 years and all his fans are excited to watch his return. In the absence of names like Khabib Nurmagomedov and Conor McGregor, Diaz’s return is great for the company. However, the odds are evenly split here as both the men stand at -115/-115 meaning that it is anyone’s game. However, expect the odds to shift in Diaz’s favor as we inch closer to UFC 241.
