Alexander Pantoja is set to defend his Flyweight title against Steven Erceg at UFC 301, and the odds are out. This matchup is scheduled for May 4th from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Odds provided by DraftKings accurate as of 8:55 AM EST 3/30/2024

Current Odds: Alexandre Pantoja -258, Steve Erceg +210

These odds mean a bettor would need to risk $258 on Alexandre Pantoja to win $100; meanwhile, a risk of $100 on Steve Erceg could win $210.

Many were surprised when this matchup was announced, with Erceg ranked #10 in the division. However, with Pantoja needing an opponent to defend in his home country, this seemed the best option available. Alexandre Pantoja most recently defended his belt against Brandon Royval at UFC 296, winning a unanimous decision. Steve Erceg gets his shot here after an impressive knockout win over Matt Schnell earlier this year.
