MMA betting is back and Skybook has the best UFC 251 betting odds and bonuses. Don't miss this excellent opportunity to bet on the exciting world of the UFC, register now.

When it comes to fighting, anything, and we mean anything, can happen, especially when you unite the elite to fight their grudges in the octagon. UFC 251 will be the first event in Fight Island, and, as such, it needed a huge card to inaugurate this outlandish -and crazy- idea. Dana White delivered. 

With three title fights on the card, the tension is as high as it gets. When it comes to competition, there are always favorites and underdogs, and inside the cage, that's no exception. However, one punch is all it takes to drastically shift the odds and make a gambler gain a considerable payday.

As said, three title fights are ready to settle the undisputed king in three different divisions, and you can check all the UFC 251 odds here. But now, let's look into the three underdogs of this fights and who can give you a big profit shall they win.

Petr Yan (-227) vs. Jose Aldo (+182) - Bantamweight title

Aldo has a high chance of winning. And there are a few reasons to solidify this argument. First of all, Aldo has been competing in championship fights and main events for more than a decade. He knows how to handle five rounds of grueling action.

Yan is a killer, but his five-round bout experience is really scarce, only having two, and being 1-1 on those outings. Plus, they weren't in the bright lights of a UFC title fight. Yan is always a tough night out, but Aldo's experience may be tempting to put the money on the underdog.

Alex Volkanovski (-234) vs. Max Holloway (+184) - Featherweight Title

This fight is very contrasting. Volkanovski stripped Holloway after five rounds and won via Unanimous Decision, so the fight experience, the five rounds cardio, and the spotlight of a title fight are none distant feelings for neither Volkanovski nor Holloway.

Volkanovski defeated Holloway convincingly by 50-45, 48-47, and 48-47 in the judges' scorecards. The Aussie landed 51% of his significant strikes while Holloway an inferior 44%. 

Holloway is the greatest featherweight of all time, so a bet on him is always a good shout. However, shall Volkanovski retain, he can enter the elite 145 pounders group, and no fight is the same. Still, judging by the antecedent, Volkanovski can damage with leg kicks and getting underneath Holloway's reach.

Kamaru Usman (-275) vs. Jorge 'Gamebred' Masvidal (+215) - Welterweight Title

Under usual circumstances, this would be an incredible fight with contrasting differences. This is still the case, but we need to look at how this came to be.

Masvidal took this fight on short notice, less than a week to prepare. Plus, he has to cut 20 pounds to make championship weight. That is a major weight cut that can affect Gamebred's energy, strength, and stamina. When going against a cardio machine with incredible grappling like Usman, this is very troubling for Masvidal.

Out of the three, Jose Aldo is ready to take the crown as the underdog, but it is MMA, anything can happen when you lock certified madmen inside the octagon.
