Full betting odds released for UFC on ESPN+ 33: Smith vs. Rakic


The full betting odds have been released for the 11 fights scheduled to take place Saturday’s UFC on ESPN+ 33: Smith vs. Rakic event.

In the main event, two of the top-10 light heavyweights in the UFC go at it as Aleksandar Rakic takes on Anthony Smith. Rakic is coming off of a split decision loss to Volkan Oezdemir in his last outing, while Smith is coming off a  brutal TKO loss to Glover Teixeira. With Jon Jones recently vacating his title, this is a very important fight in the 205lbs title picture.

In the co-main event, former UFC welterweight champion Robbie Lawler fills in on short notice against the always-tough Neil Magny. Lawler has lost his last three fights while Magny is coming off of a pair of decision victories. Both men are ranked in the top-15 at 170lbs, so this is a big fight for both guys as they look to remain relevant in a stacked division.
