UFC 178 will take place from MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada with the main card bouts airing live on PPV at 10PM ET.

The main event of Saturday’s card is a bout for the Flyweight Championship with Demetrious Johnson (20-2-1) defending his title against Chris Cariaso (17-5). According to oddsmakers at BetDSI, Johnson is the overwhelming favorite to win, as he has odds of -1400 to prevail, while Cariaso has a money line of +750 to win. Johnson has won six straight at this weight class and defended his title four times. Five of his six fights at 125 have been decisions. Cariaso has won three straight, two by decision, but has lost to other Johnson challengers over the past few years, making many question his legitimacy as a contender.

The co-main event of Saturday’s event is a lightweight battle between Donald Cerrone (24-6) and Eddie Alvarez (25-3). Cerrone has won four straight fights and fighting for the fourth time this year. He is a dynamic kickboxer with good submission skills on the ground. His last four fights have all ended by KO or submission. Alvarez is making his anticipated UFC debut. He was the Bellator lightweight champion and arguably the greatest fighter in the organization’s history. He has a great striking base, but also is strong and has some wrestling ability.
