Current Odds:

Beneil Dariush -140 Charles Oliveira +120.

Oliveira is no stranger to the underdog role. With this fight, he’ll have been favored to lose three of his last five fights. The lone time he was the favorite as champion came at UFC 274 against Justin Gaethje. Unfortunately, he would not enter the octagon as the defending belt holder as he was stripped of the title due to a weight miss of 0.5 lbs.

Oliveira holds the record for submissions in the UFC, but he has been on the wrong side of submissions four times himself, most recently in his last fight vs. Islam Makhachev at UFC 280.

Dariush is on the 2nd-longest streak in the Lightweight division with eight wins in a row. Many believe he should have been next in line for the title regardless, but he’s willingly accepted any fight instead of holding out for a chance at the belt.
