Khabib vs. Gaethje Betting Odds

The world of fighting sports is in line for a massive bout, the first of that magnitude within 2020. The recent pandemic has spoiled many significant events throughout the year, but UFC 254 is about to make amends to the MMA (but not limited to) fans. The everlasting battle between Russia and the USA is here again and the Khabib Nurmagomedov vs Justin Gaethje fight is the big talk of the town. The “Eagle” wants to take one step closer to ending his career as an undefeated world champion. On the other hand, “ The Highlight” is the interim titleholder after the huge 5th round KO win against Ferguson on May 9th at the UFC 249. The American gladiator can’t stop there, though. His eyes are on the prize, on the real thing, the Belt Of Truth, the title of the best MMA fighter in the world in the Lightweight (155 lbs) division.

Just like every other fighting sports enthusiast, the Bookmakers.bet team is waiting with great anticipation for the next Ultimate Fighting Championship pay-per-view event, which will take place on October 24 at The Flash Forum on Yas Island in Abu Dhabi. The battle is immensely expected, as it is the first time Khabib will step into the octagon since September 2019 and a way to get back on track after the cancellation of March’s bout against Ferguson, due to Coronavirus.

The Dagestan fighter, who is considered as the number two pound for pound UFC fighter, just behind Jon Jones, will try to retain both his title and his undefeated 28-0 record. Eight out of these victories came through a TKO or a KO and 10 via submissions. Moreover, this will be the third time, “The Eagle” will defend his belt. Previously, he choked Poirier (September 2019) and before that, the Notorious McGregor submitted to his greatness. As for Gaethje, the American has already tasted his own blood, since he will step into the fight with a record of 22 wins and 2 loses. What is impressive, though, is that Gaethje has managed to win through a TKO or a KO 19 times. But how all those above are being translated on a betting level? Where are the bettors going to find the best UFC 254 betting odds for this epic duel?

Nurmagomedov vs Gaethje UFC 254 Betting Odds

Monzo fees

Let's get now to the real thing. The truth is that Khabib is the super favorite of the match and his win comes on an average 1.33. But are the things going to be so easy as the odds suggest? The answer is no, since the two fighters are not so different in their style, nor do they differ in their body type. Same hand and foot reach, same weight and similar fighting techniques. Both of them are great both at striking and the only real advantage for Khabib is fighting on the ground. Should you consider that Gaethje lands 7.74 significant strikes (UFC record) per minute and that 19 out of his 22 victories came through a KO/TKO, things will be difficult for the Dagestan fighter, although the latter has a 67% rate on defending strikes. The American is an unstoppable offensive-minded slugger and it could give us a greater value to go with Gaethje's victory at 3.70 on 22Bet. Additionally, considering all the aforementioned, the possibility of Over 118.5 significant strikes on the game is attracting (from both fighters) and comes on 1.90.

Khabib vs. Gaethje Betting

Since we have already referred to the method of victory, KO/TKO is Gaethje’s thing and you might get it at a great with Gaethje's victory at 3.40 at bet365, while the possibility of the game to end through a KO/TKO is at 2.35 on 22Bet. In case you believe that Khabib is the one to be dominant in this battle, bear in mind that his stronger case is the ground. After all, 10 out of his 28 victories came through submission. His sambo fight style helps him massively and the fact that he tends to get the fight to the ground is proved by the 5.25 takedowns per 15 minutes, with a huge accuracy of almost 50% while he attempts one submission per 15 minutes. The possibility of a Nurmagomedov win through submission (the exact way he dominated over McGregor and Poirier) comes at 3.00 at Parimatch.

Another attractive bet for the fight is the total rounds to be played. The line is 4.5 and not on 3.5, which is the most usual. The reason behind that is simple. Both fighters have tremendous stamina, they never back down and on most occasions, their fights reach the 5th round. KO/TKO is at 2.35 on 22Bet, and it seems like the way to go in the fight. Having that in mind, you can also bet on the bout to ‘Go the distance” on 2.38 at Betfair.

You can also bet on the round each fighter may win and on a combo bet containing the method of victory and round. For example, Gaethje to win by TKO/KO in the 5th round is at 36.00, while “The Eagle” to win through submission at his favorite game 3 is priced at 12.00 at Betfair. You may find other exotic wagers regarding the main event of the 254 cards is Double Chance (Fighter to win through 2 ways), Win to come in Rounds 1,2,3 (1.90-Parimatch) and Win to come on Round 4,5 or Decision, priced at 2.50 at 1XBet.

The Eagle vs The Highlight special betting types

Of course, fun bets are a great part of an event like that and the Gaethje vs. Nurmagomedov fight would not lack them. For example, you may bet on the fight to end within 00:00 and 00:59 of the round, priced at 15.00, or the Fight to start on Round 5 (that means that the two warriors will start trading strikes), which is offered at 2.30 on several bookies.

But the extra betting opportunities won’t stop there. You can also wager on the Round the Fight Will End (the 5th is nicely priced at 9.10 at 1XBet) and How the Fight Will End, with submission being offered on 3.10 and TKO/KO on 2.35 at 22Bet.
