It's only been 24 hours since the highly anticipated bout between UFC bantamweight champion Dominick Cruz and Cody Garbrandt was announced, but the Vegas betting odds are already buzzing.
Cruz has opened as a significant betting favorite (-220) over first time title challenger Garbrandt (+177). The odds are based on Sportsbook betting as reported by bestfightodds.com.
Garbrandt is currently on a five fight win streak in the UFC and is undefeated as a pro. He will face Cruz in December at UFC 207.
Cruz is likewise undefeated in the UFC, and hasn't lost a professional bout since 2007, a first round submission defeat at the hands of Urijah Faber in WEC.
Cruz is most recently coming off of a decision win over Urijah Faber at UFC 199. Garbrandt earned his title shot with a first round finish over Takeya Mizugaki at UFC 202.
