Frankie Edgar Currently -210 To Beat Cub Swanson

A compelling UFC Fight Night card will be taking place in Austin, Texas on Saturday evening.

There are a total of three fights on the card that pit ranked fighters against each other, including Frankie Edgar vs Cub Swanson in the main event. Despite being the higher ranked fighter (#2 in the Featherweight division), Cub Swanson is the underdog heading into the fight.

In addition, Edson Barboza (#11) will be taking on Bobby King (#7) in the co-main event, while Joseph Benavidez (#2) will be battling Dustin Ortiz (#13).

Here are the current odds for the main and co-main events:

Frankie Edgar, -210
Cub Swanson, +170

According to these odds, Frankie Edgar currently has a 67.57% chance of winning the fight, while Cub Swanson has a 37.04% chance.

There is plenty on the line in this fight, as Cub Swanson has reportedly been promised a title shot if he manages to get by Edgar. This is going to create an issue, as Conor McGregor is likely thought to get the next shot at the title if he wins his January tilt against Dennis Siver.

The odds for the co-main event look like this:

Edson Barboza, -135
Bobby Green, +105

These odds mean that Edson Barboza has the very slight edge, though the fight is essentially a coin flip.

Bobby Green raised some eyebrows earlier in the week when he stated that this could be his last fight - what kind of impact will his possible retirement have on the co-main event tilt?

This is one of the stronger Fight Night cards and should be some great fun to watch.
