It says a lot about the depth of matchups at UFC 249—or those organising the schedule—that a rematch between Donald Cerrone and Anthony Pettis falls down to preliminary status.
Donald Cerrone vs. Anthony Pettis Betting Prediction
UFC 249 Odds: Cerrone (+120) vs. Pettis (-140)
Fans will just be glad to see a fight of such a calibre taking place, and fireworks seem assured when “Showtime” seeks to score a second career victory over “Cowboy” in Florida.
Both fighters boast legend status in the UFC yet have both been short of wins in recent years. Pettis has lost eight of his 12 fights since the beginning of 2015—against a very high level of opponent, it’s worth mentioning—while Cerrone is riding a three-loss streak into this fight.
That being said, Cerrone’s defeats to the likes of Tony Ferguson, Justin Gaethje and Conor McGregor signify a slightly superior class of enemy, and the +120 (2.20) underdog looks like the value here.
