UFC 205 betting odds: Conor McGregor opens as slight favorite

Conor McGregor will be headlining the Ultimate Fighting Championship’s Madison Square Garden debut against lightweight champion Eddie Alvarez in the main event of UFC 205.

Now that the title fight is official, the oddsmakers are beginning to set their betting lines for the bout.

According to Nick Kalikas of MMAOddsBreaker.com via ESPN.com, McGregor will enter the matchup as a -125 favorite over Alvarez. The lightweight title holder currently has -105 odds.

The fight is virtually a pick ’em.

If McGregor is victorious at UFC 205, he will become the first fighter in history to hold UFC titles in different weight classes at the same time. He would become just the third fighter in history, joining Randy Couture and BJ Penn, to win belts in two divisions.
