One of the most dominant fighters in the sport will take to the Octagon this weekend as UFC Flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson puts his title on the line against top-ranked Kyoji Horiguchi.
UFC 186 will also feature an important matchup in the Middleweight division, as well as an appearance from women’s 135-pounders when Sarah Kaufman and Alexis Davis battle for the second time.
UFC odds on the UFC 186 fight card are available at 5Dimes including a wide selection of prop bet options. The current line on Johnson defending his title is coming with a hefty -1000 price.
There is some better MMA betting value in the 5Dimes prop options, especially the UNDER 4.5 rounds at +100. Johnson wins inside the distance offers a little extra pay at +105, and if you want to gamble Johnson wins by KO/TKO will currently pay +333.
The co-main event will feature an ageing Michael Bisping against the ever-improving C.B. Dollaway. Closely handicapped at 5Dimes, Bisping is currently a -145 favorite while the Dollaway upset is worth +125.
This fight could go either way, it all depends on how well Bisping can deal with the wrestling skills of Dollaway. What we do expect to happen is to see this fight go the distance, and likely be a close decision. Fight goes to a decision has a -210 price and the OVER 2.5 rounds is currently at -235.
UFC 186 odds on the Alexis Davis vs. Sarah Kauman rematch at 5Dimes currently have Kaufman handicapped as the -190 favorite. Once again this one should go the distance and be worth the -230 price on fight goes to decision.
We even like the +235 option that Davis wins by decision since she has shown the most improvement since losing a close split decision to Kaufman in 2012. We think she will put her wrestling skills to use this time and get the decision win.
