Some quick words before the biggest MMA fight of 2018 take place: I think Khabib wins but his betting line is not tempting.

UFC 229 overall is a great card for betting, I see many value plays but the main fight doesn’t really present anything special. The juice on Khabib(-160) makes it difficult to justify a play on him. If it was a pickem fight odds wise, it would be an easy bet. That said, it wouldn’t surprise me if Khabib steamrolled Conor. There are very few outcomes in this fight that would outright surprise me, I can easily see both guys winning early. The only thing that is a bit far-fetched is Conor winning by decision.
