UFC 269 Fight Card, Odds
UFC 269 features a loaded fight card, headlined by a lightweight championship fight between Charles Oliveira vs. Dustin Poirier. These are two of the most experienced fighters in UFC history, and the two meet in what will be their combined 56th UFC appearance.
Vegas oddsmakers currently have Poirier (28-6 MMA, 20-5 UFC) as the favorite over Oliveira (31-8 MMA, 19-8 UFC). After literally bringing the trash-talking Conor McGregor to his knees at UFC 264 (with Poirier winning via technical knockout), Dustin “The Diamond” will be hungry to take down the current champ Oliveira at UFC 269.
There are a ton of other intriguing matchups on the UFC 269 fight card. The co-main event features two-division UFC champion Amanda Nunes defending her women’s bantamweight title against Julianna Pena.
The rest of the five-round main card features Geoff Neal vs. Santiago Ponzinibbio in a welterweight bout, and former UFC bantamweight champ Cody Garbrand making his flyweight debut vs. Kai Kara-France. The opening fight of the UFC 269 main card pits Raulian Paiva vs. Sean O’Malley in a bantamweight matchup.
