    Black Beast looks to be +275 against Ngannou in the (not yet official) rematch despite winning a decision we're all trying to forget in 2018

    Unless the rematch was 5 or more years later, when one party could be old and slow now, what are some other instances of fighters being significant underdogs in a rematch after winning the first fight?

    Serra looks like he was +350 after beating GSP the first time and I have to imagine that's the biggest example of a winner being a dog in the rematch. Is Black Beast the biggest underdog winner since then?

    Ngannou was clearly not at his best that night. I wouldn't expect a repeat performance from either of them, honestly. Lewis probably will lose a decision, but I expect a good fight either way

    Only one bookie has put that line out and it very well may have just been to draw in early action.

    Derrick will absolutely not hold at +275. +150 is the absolute maximum he will close at.

    Rousey was a -750
    Tate was a +450

    Lewis +150 assumes Ngannou gets below -200. I would be shocked by that.

    Chuck Liddell was +300 in the most recent Tito Ortiz fight if we're counting ridiculous freakshows...

    No fighter better represents the "was losing, until he won" more than Derrick Lewis. It's like inside of him is a Bob Sapp that debates throwing the fight with every shot he takes, then somewhere even deeper, is a Beast that yells back "NO! FUCK THAT SHIT!" then he upends his opponent.

    I don't know how to search for old betting line but i'm pretty sure Bisping was underdog. And rightfully, at the time he was the old gatekeeper vs the new MW GOAT

    Was Rose the favorite in the rematch with JJ?

    You're right, the question was "after winning first fight"

    I highly doubt Bisping was the favorite.

    Why would a bookie be offering early odds on a too heavy underdog bet they’d have to pay out extra for?

    All the ngnnoou hype, plus him seeming more athletic than simply powerful like black beast, +250 sounds about right to me. *275 is within bookie swing of that
