UFC Odds - Lightweight Rankings, September 2017

It remains to be seen if Conor McGregor will come back to defend his title, but the lightweight division will attempt to move on in the meantime. Tony Ferguson and Kevin Lee will square off for the interim championship at UFC 216 on October 7. There’s no question that “El Cucuy” is deserving of a title shot, but it’s a bummer that it’s not coming against Khabib Nurmagomedov.

UFC Odds & Ends

Ferguson opened as a big -280 favorite, with Lee at +180. At those odds, Lee is a live ‘dog as a fantastic submission wrestler who could bottle up the hyperactive Ferguson. The “Motown Phenom” has enjoyed a rapid ascent - helped by a natural ability to start beef - but he’s not yet known outside MMA circles. This is his chance to become a star.

Fighter to Watch

McGregor’s management has stated that they’re interested in a trilogy bout with Nate Diaz, which would be the biggest matchup the UFC could make right now. However, Diaz’s manager stated that his team would want at least $20 million for the bout. Whether WME-IMG caves in to Diaz’ demands is a fascinating story to follow.

The Greats

B.J. Penn is the first name that comes to mind when talking about the best lightweights in UFC history. One of only three men to win titles in two division, “The Prodigy” was easily one of the promotion’s most popular champions.

The Future of Lightweight

With McGregor in this division, this will likely be one of the spotlight divisions for as long as the Irishman stays put. And that is a great thing, since this is by far the deepest talent pool in the UFC. Guys here deserve the limelight, and fans have a number of thrilling matches to look forward to.
