UFC 219 Odds and Predictions: Cyborg vs. Holm

UFC 219 is set to take place in Las Vegas on December 30th. Typically, the UFC’s December occasion is earmarked as the large end-of-year show with a card that’s piled from top to base. However, the present menu for UFC 219 lacks just a little sizzle.
The main event has Cris Cyborg protecting her featherweight title against the other ferocious puncher in Holly Holm. On paper, it might seem one-sided, but recall the last time we doubted Holm in perceived mismatch name fight?
It is a fantastic matchup, to be sure. Still, there are worries it will not sell pay-per-views. So now, rumors are swirling about last-minute additions to the card, including Nate Diaz in some capacity. A trilogy fight with Conor McGregor has been the dream, but that will not be happening as McGregor is coping with some fallout from his Bellator fiasco and bumping out a drug cartel associate. Oops.
Those transgressions will continue to keep the Irishman from the UFC octagon for an extended time period, if not permanently.
In terms of Diaz, he seemingly has been provided everything but the moon. However, the Stockton native is demanding a celestial body, by which I mean totes and bags of money, before he steps inside an Octagon again.
While one or two more bouts could be inserted to provide the card some additional pugilistic goodness, it appears that the main event is set, and I’m ok with that. What fans really need at this point are quality conflicts, not only big names. And in addition to Cyborg/Holm, we’re going to visit Khabib Nurmagomedov vs. Edson Barboza, a massive fight that could give another lightweight competition. The weigh-in might be just as dramatic as the battle handed Nurmagomedov struggles to create 155.
While we wait patiently for more shine to be added, let us stir the present pot and divide the primary and co-main events of the day to your gambling needs.
