The opening odds are in for the welterweight contest between Conor McGregor and Donald Cerrone. Unsurprising to none, the Irish bad boy currently sits at a -225 favorite.

Our friends at BetOnline.com have McGregor as the moderate betting favorite, with Cerrone a slight +190 underdog.

Conor McGregor the betting favorite

McGregor (21-4) is arguably the largest draw under the UFC banner, however, he has not graced the Octagon since October 2018. “Notorious” hit the scene with a bang and wound up winning the UFC featherweight and lightweight championships. The 31-year-old has not defended either of those titles. This contest against Cerrone will be held at 170-pounds, which McGregor has fought twice at. He went 1-1 against Nate Diaz at welterweight.

Cerrone (36-13, 1NC) is one of the most active fighters in the UFC. “Cowboy” has fought at both lightweight and welterweight. The entire calendar year of 2019, the 36-year-old returned to 155-pounds and 2-2 earning four bonus awards. Most recently Cerrone lost to Justin Gaethje by first-round stoppage.

The McGregor vs. Cerrone bout will take place on April 18, 2020, at UFC 246. This is currently the only bout announced for the pay-per-view fight card.
