Former Welterweight champion Kamaru Usman has just been announced as the replacement for Paulo Costa against Khamzat Chimaev for the UFC 294 co-main event and the odds are out for this new matchup. This fight will take place at Middleweight from the Etihad Arena in Abu Dhabi on October 20th.

Odds Provided by accurate as of 10/11/2023 4:48 PM EST

Current Odds: Khamzat Chimaev -310, Kamaru Usman +260

These odds mean a bettor would need to risk $310 on Khamzat Chimaev to win $100; meanwhile, a risk of $100 on Kamaru Usman could win $260.

This fight is one that many wanted to see when Usman was the king of the Welterweight division but now, we get it with much different stakes. Khamzat Chimaev has been out of action since his first-round submission win over Kevin Holland at UFC 279. Kamaru Usman will look to get back on track after losing his belt to Leon Edwards and failing to regain it in the rematch earlier this year.
