UFC Fight Night 237 Odds: The Former Champion Has the Advantage



If Brandon Royval had won the Flyweight title in mid-December, this bout would have been the main event of a huge PPV card. This is how significant this match is and it makes this Fight Night extremely exciting. With this said, here are the best UFC Fight Night 237 odds.

UFC Fight Night 237 Odds: The Best Moreno vs Royval 2 Odds

The UFC's bantamweight division had been stagnant for quite a while, with Brandon Moreno and Deiveson Figueiredo fighting for the title four times in a row over a period of three years. This finally changed when Alexandre Pantoja beat Moreno via split decision in July 2023 and won the belt. He has since defended it once against Brandon Royval (December 2023) and is waiting for the next challenger, who will be decided this Saturday.

Moreno vs Royval 2 Odds – Moneyline

Originally, Brandon Moreno was supposed to face the #2-ranked Amir Albazi for the title shot but the Iraqi withdrew (for unknown reason) and Royval stepped in to replace him only two months after his last fight. As expected, Moreno is heavily favored by the bookmakers and is a solid betting favorite at -275. In turn, you can bet on Royval to win at +225.

UFC Odds – Moreno vs Royval 2 Method of Victory

The most important thing you should know about both fighters is that they have black belts in Brazilian jiu-jitsu and have won the majority of their fights via submission.

Needless to say, the method of victory market is the one to look at for this bout as an early finish is quite possible again.
