Anthony Pettis Currently -450 Favorite To Defeat Rafael Dos Anjos

Published on March 2nd, 2015 6:37 pm EST

The UFC has another big event lined up for March 14th at the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas.

The main event of the card will feature a Lightweight title fight between Anthony "Showtime" Pettis and Rafael dos Anjos.

Dos Anjos earned a shot at the title after thoroughly dismantling Nate Diaz at UFC on Fox: dos Santos vs Miocic. Dos Anjos has won three fights in a row, including victories over Benson Henderson and Jason High.

Anthony Pettis, on the other hand, is finally back and healthy following a lengthy layoff. Pettis showed absolutely no rust when he submitted Gilbert Melendez at UFC 181 in December of 2014. Pettis has said that he wishes to stay busy following his lengthy layoff and this is going to be the case with the Dos Anjos fight.


Here are the current odds for this contest:

Anthony Pettis, -450
Rafael dos Anjos, +325

According to these odds, Pettis should win the fight 81.97% of the time while Pettis should win 23.53% of the time.

Pettis is seen by most as being simply too dynamic for Dos Anjos. Dos Anjos is a notoriously hard out in the UFC's Lightweight division, though he is going to be going up against one of the top pound-for-pound fighters in the world on March 15th. Anybody who can submit the notoriously tough Gilbert Melendez, it is said, shouldn’t have too much trouble defeating dos Anjos.


Other fights on this card include Johny Hendricks (-310) vs Matt Brown (+240), Carla Esparza (-155) vs Joanna Jedrzejcyzk (+125) and Alistair Overeem (-225) vs Roy Nelson (+175).
