Even though UFC 209 takes place on March 4, Dana White and Co. are going to have a hard time topping it in 2017. Even without superstar Conor McGregor attached to the card, it’s drawn significant hype due to the main event between Tyron Woodley and Stephen Thompson, and especially the co-feature with Khabib Nurmagomedov and Tony Ferguson.
While the dropoff from there is steep in terms of title significance, there are plenty of crowd-pleasing fights and marquee names propping up an awesome night of fights.
Let’s take a look at some UFC odds from BookMaker.eu and take a glimpse at some of the night’s more notable scraps.
Welterweight Championship: Stephen Thompson -168 vs. Tyron Woodley +143
Odds after UFC 209 Weigh in: Thompson -140 - Woodley +140
Why You Should Watch The last time these two met, they battled to a hard-fought majority draw. But a decisive result is only a fraction of why this matchup is so exciting. Thompson arguably has the most fan-friendly style in the UFC, lighting up opponents with a style of kickboxing that’s seems as if it’s ripped straight from Bloodsport.
On the other hand, Woodley is the most physically gifted welterweight on the roster. “Explosive” doesn’t even begin to describe how fast he is or how hard he can hit. It only took an instant for him to change the whole complexion of the fight the first time around, perhaps he can finish what he started in the rematch.

Heavyweights: Alistair Overeem -131 vs. Mark Hunt +111
Why You Should Watch If you’re one of those fans that just wanna watch guys bang, this fight falls under the must-watch categories. Both Overeem and Mark Hunt are former K-1 kickboxers with one-punch knockout power, and each have put up their fair share of Fight of the Nights. Watching the massively muscled Overeem tangle with the portly, iron-chinned Samoan is something that would appeal to even the most casual fans.
UFC 209 - Alistair Overeem vs. Mark Hunt Prediction
Two of the heavyweight division’s most decorated kickboxers will square off this Saturday when former K-1 contenders Alistair Overeem and Mark Hunt meet on the main card of UFC 209.

Rashad Evans (-220) vs. Daniel Kelly (+185)
Lando Vannata (-375) vs. David Teymur (+305)
Daniel Spitz (+120) vs. Mark Goodbeer (-140) Luis Henrique (+131)vs. Marcin Tybrua (-156)
Darren Elkins (+485)vs. Mirsad Bekitc (-675)
Albert Morales (-135) vs. Andre Soukamthath (+115)
Amada Cooper (-111) vs. Cynthia Calvillo (-108)
Former light heavyweight champion Rashad Evans makes his middleweight debut in hopes of resurrecting a flagging career. He meets popular Australian Daniel Kelly, a dad-bod fighter with a penchant for gutting out upset victories.
“Groovy” Lando Vannata is funky fighter with an awkward, high-octane fighting style. He’s a legitimate prospect at lightweight, and who can forget how he nearly shocked the world by almost beating Tony Ferguson in his last-minute UFC debut. He gets another fight to showcase his skills.
A Todd Duffee fight is not the time to go to the bathroom. No heavyweight personifies the “kill-or-be-killed” mentality like Duffee, and he’s the type to charge forward winging haymakers as soon as the fight starts. His matchups usually only last a couple minutes, with somebody left unconscious.
