View Real-Time Sports Betting Odds

Woodley (14-3) is a strong and powerful striker that tends to work quickly. He has the ability to grapple, but tends to tire out as fights move on. Gastelum (10-0) is a technical striker with some grappling skills, but he isn’t quite as powerful and strong as his opponent tonight. He has good patience and likes to grind out fights.

The latest odds according to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv have Woodley favored in this fight, as he is getting odds of -185 to win, while Gastelum has odds of +150 to win. Gastelum actually was the favorite as early as yesterday. These two will meet in the main event of UFC 183 tonight from Las Vegas. The main card airs on PPV at 10PM ET.

The reason that Gastelum is no longer favored is that he weighed in 9 pounds overweight on Friday, coming in at 180 pounds for a 171-pound limit. Reports then came out that he was hospitalized Friday morning while trying to cut weight. It’s hard to imagine that Gastelum will have the energy to compete with Woodley, especially early one when Woodley really comes out swinging. Gastelum’s best bet was to survive the early storm and then grind him out for the last two rounds. With that out the window, look for Woodley to score the TKO victory.
