Tonight, the UFC will hit Manchester, England for the UFC 204 Pay-Per View, which takes place from the Manchester Arena. The event is certainly a highly anticipated one, which will be headlined by a middleweight rematch seven years in the making.
Several fights which have garnered interest from fans specifically include Danny Roberts vs. Mike Perry, which takes place on the UFC Fight Pass Prelims, Brad Pickett vs. Iuri Alcantara, which takes place on the Fox Sports 1 prelims, the co-main event scrap between Vitor Belfort vs. Gegard Mousasi, and of course the main event scrap between Michael Bisping vs. Dan Henderson.
Below you can see the latest betting odds for the card, courtesy of Bovada:
Main card (Pay Per-View)
(c) Michael Bisping (-240) vs. Dan Henderson (+190)
Gegard Mousasi (-325) vs. Vitor Belfort (+250)
Ovince Saint Preux (-155) vs. Jimi Manuwa (+125)
Stefan Struve (-185) vs. Daniel Omielanczuk (+150)

Preliminary card (Fox Sports 1)
Iuri Alcantara (-140) vs. Brad Pickett (+110)
Davey Grant (-190) vs. Damian Stasiak (+155)
Albert Tumenov (-230) vs. Leon Edwards (+180)
UFC Fight Pass prelims
Danny Roberts (-115) vs. Mike Perry (-115)
Adriano Martins (-200) vs. Leanrdo Santos (+160)
To simplify the above-mentioned numbers using the main event scrap as an example, it would take a $240 bet on Bisping, the favorite, to potentially earn $100, whereas a $100 bet on Henderson, the underdog, would potentially earn you $190.
Interestingly enough, one can’t help but notice the odds for the co-main event scrap between Gegard Mousasi vs. Vitor Belfort. While Belfort currently sits at #5 on the UFC middleweight rankings, Mousasi sits at #9. Despite that, Mousasi is a heavy favorite in the fight (-325) to Belfort’s (+250).
Mousasi is of course riding a 2-fight win streak into the bout that most recently saw him KO Thiago Santos at UFC 200, whereas Belfort will be looking to return to the win column after being TKOd by Jacare Souza back at UFC 198.
