Odds Provided by accurate as of 12/20/2023 11:15 AM EST

Current Odds: Magomed Ankalaev -450, Johnny Walker +350

These odds mean a bettor would need to risk $450 on Magomed Ankalaev to win $100; meanwhile, a risk of $100 on Johnny Walker could win $350.

The pair originally fought at UFC 294 where after just a few minutes an illegal knee from Ankalaev forced the doctor to check on Walker which caused the bout to be called off after some confusion. Magomed Ankalaev entered their first matchup off his draw against Jan Blachowicz when fighting for the title last December. Johnny Walker went into the first meeting off three straight wins most recently a decision where he dominated Anthony Smith.
