UFC 266 brings two title fights and very well-matched fights this Saturday to the screen of Combat, but two clear favorites according to Palpitation Combat: flyweight champion Valentina Shevchenko and her latest challenger, Jessica “Stake-out” Andrade. Both were unanimous choices for their respective confrontations at the event.

Palpitão’s 15-0 score in the fight between Valentina and American Lauren Murphy reflects the odds of bookmakers, who place Shevchenko as the favorite by up to -2000, which means it takes a $2,000 bet to make a measly $100. A Murphy win pays up to 9.2 times the bet, which would potentially become the biggest upset in UFC history.
The 15-0 for Bate-Estaca is another reflection of the confidence in the Brazilian’s power and endurance against Cynthia Calvillo, an American with Mexican roots with nine wins, two defeats and a draw in the cartel. At odds for this fight they are much closer in bookmakers: the Brazilian has -238 favoritism and Calvillo is the zebra by +225 (a $100 bet on her pays $225 in profit), according to the website “Best Fight Odds “.
In the main event, featherweight champion Alexander Volkanovski is favorite against Brian Ortega, who is fighting for the belt for the second time in his career – in the first, he lost by TKO to Max Holloway. Brazilian Marlon Moraes is slightly behind against rising Georgian Merab Dvalishvili.
