The co-main event for UFC 249 sees Dominick Cruz return to the octagon after almost four years out of action and get an immediate title shot against the current UFC bantamweight king, Henry Cejudo.
Henry Cejudo vs. Dominick Cruz UFC 249 Betting Preview & Predictions
Odds: Henry Cejudo (-225) vs. Dominick Cruz (+190)
Cejudo finished Marlon Moraes in June 2019 to clinch the then-vacant bantamweight belt, making this his first defence of that title, originally meant to take place opposite Jose Aldo.
“The Messenger” has spring-boarded up the rankings since his defeat to Joseph Benavidez in December 2016, winning five fights in the time that Cruz has spent just regaining fitness.
Cejudo looks deserving of his -225 (1.44) odds, and for Cruz to emerge victorious here would be an even greater comeback than his January 2016 win over TJ Dillashaw to reclaim the bantamweight title.
