Odds Provided by DraftKings accurate as of 5/29/2023 12:30 AM EST

Current Odds: Jan Blachowicz -150, Alex Pereira +130

These odds mean a bettor would need to risk $150 to win $100 on Jan Blachowicz, meanwhile, a $100 bet on Alex Pereira would win $130.

This matchup could determine a lot in the very uncertain future of the Light Heavyweight division. Jan Blachowicz is coming off a draw in his title fight with Magomed Ankalaev last December, meaning this is his first appearance this year. Alex Pereira makes a rather quick turnaround here off his loss to Israel Adesanya, where he lost his Middleweight title by second-round knockout.
