McGregor -600 Favourite To Beat Dennis Siver

Published on November 17th, 2014 5:02 pm EST

The #5 ranked Featherweight fighter in the UFC, Conor McGregor, will be squaring off against Dennis Siver in the main event of UFC Fight Night 59 in January. While McGregor's home country is Ireland, UFC Fight Night 59 will be taking place in his "second home", Boston.

The McGregor vs Siver fight is seen as a tune-up fight for the Irish superstar as he will very likely be fighting Jose Aldo for the title next (should he beat Siver, of course). Dennis Siver, who is a skilled striker, will be doing his best to derail the Conor McGregor hype train.

McGregor, fresh off of impressive victories over Diego Brandao and Dustin Poirier, has opened as a substantial favourite to beat Siver:

Conor McGregor, -600
Dennis Siver, +400

So, according to these odds, you would need to bet $600 on McGregor in order to make $100 in profit from your bet. A $100 wager on Siver, however, would generate a total profit of $400 if he were able to pull off the victory.

According to the oddsmakers, McGregor has a 85.47% chance of winning in January, while Siver has a 20% chance of victory.

Siver is looking to build momentum off of a recent victory against Charles Rosa at UFC Fight Night: Nelson vs Story. Unfortunately for Siver, the German fighter is running straight into the Conor McGregor buzzsaw. Will McGregor notch another first round victory or will Siver give the Irish superstar more than he can handle?
