Aljamain Sterling is set to face Henry Cejudo at UFC 288.

Odds provided by betonline.ag accurate as of February 20th, 3:00 PM EST.
Aljamain Sterling -120, Henry Cejudo +110
Although "The Funkmaster" Aljamain Sterling might have controversially won his belt, via a DQ due to an illegal knee, he has since silenced doubters like Dana White with his recent wins over Petr Yan and TJ Dillashaw. His last bout saw him completely dominate Dillashaw, who entered the fight with an injured shoulder. He would hammer Dillashaw on the ground with elbows and punches en route to a second-round TKO victory.
Despite being far from the height of his career and coming off an over 3-year layoff, the gold medalist winner of the 2008 Beijing Olympics in wrestling is barely an underdog. Cejudo enters as a +110, meaning a $100 bet would win you $110. Having not fought in years and now taking care of a wife and daughter, these odds speak to the reputation and credentials of Cejudo, and he'll look to become a 2x Bantamweight champion with a victory over Sterling.
