Conor McGregor early favorite over Rafael Dos Anjos

Conor McGregor will defend his lightweight championship against Rafael dos Anjos at UFC 196 on March 5 and it is sure to be a night filled with excitement. It looks like McGregor has, unsurprisingly, opened as an early favorite against dos Anjos.

Jeremy Botter of Bleacher Report said on Twitter that MGM properties currently has McGregor as a -170 favorite. The company also says that the odds for the fight not going three rounds is -145.

Those are some pretty good odds in favor of McGregor, but it will likely drive the number up as people start to place bets on Dos Anjos in the coming weeks.
