    I expect this guy to be the head oddsmaker looking at those lines.

    That's pretty funny actually. Cummins is a nobody.

    In Henderson's case, the betting odds reflect an assessment of strengths and weaknesses of both Cormier and Henderson.

    In Cummins' case, the betting odds reflect on assessment of Cormier's strengths and weaknesses and unfamiliarity with Cummins'.

    There was some pretty wide speculation about Cormier being able to comfortably make weight. That cast a shadow in the odds with Cummins when it was still unknown. As it happened, his cut looked to be relatively smooth and he seemed to have dropped enough body fat to have an easy cut to 205.

    There are no questions around the weight cut this time. The odds were depressed last time.

    Also no one had seen Cormier at this weight an didn't know how the weight loss would effect him.

    But Cummins rag dolls UFC fighters at the gym though....

    He also made DC cry so odds are pretty justifiable imo

    Yeah but Hendo didn't make Cormier cry in the training gym

    Cormier was -1400 vs cummins but got bet down after people bought into the UFC Cummings hype train.

    In the past Henderson has shown up against bigger fighters, he's known for defeating giants.

    Then six months later he's back to losing to the Misakis and Shields of the sport.

    Everyone knew Cormier was putting Cummins away in the first.

    Hendo VS Cummins if Hendo losses... so the odds should be like -100 Hendo, +125 Cummins based on previous odds.

    Cummins DESTROYED Mark Munoz in the gym. Murdered him. That's how you know he's legit.

    The odds for this fight seem okay, those for the Cummins fight were way off.
