Earlier this week the UFC confirmed that the featherweight title unification bout between champ Jose Aldo and interim champ Conor McGregor would take place at UFC 194 in Las Vegas on December 12. Even though Aldo has been unbeaten since 2005 and has defended his UFC 145-pound gold a record seven times, McGregor has opened as a favorite.
According to www.Bodog.ca, McGregor has opened as a -195 favorite, with Aldo sitting at a +155 underdog.
Conor McGregor opens as almost 2/1 favorite against Jose Aldo
Aldo (25-1) is coming off a five-round war in a rematch against Chad Mendes at UFC 179 last October. He defended his title in that outing via unanimous decision.
McGregor (18-2) recently stopped Mendes via TKO in a interim title bout at UFC 189 earlier this summer.
UFC 194 takes place live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on Dec. 12.
