Current Odds: Sodiq Yusuff -173, Edson Barboza +148

These odds mean a bettor would need to risk $173 on Yusuff to win $100, and a $100 bet on Barboza would cash $148.

This is a genuine version of a prospect vs. veteran matchup. Yusuff will be looking to continue his rise to the division's top, coming off a fast submission win against Don Shainis. On the other hand, Barboza is coming off an upset knockout over Billy Quarantillo but hasn't enjoyed much success lately, being 3-5 in his last eight. This matchup will test Yusuff to see if he's ready for the top tier of the Featherweight division.
