UFC legend Daniel Cormier and voice of the Octagon, Jon Anik, were joined by esports icon Tommy Temperr, for the DraftKings preview of UFC 270, as the former heavyweight king emphasised his excitement for the narrative of this Saturday’s monster collision. 

Anik revealed that the odds in favour of Francis Ngannou have moved significantly, as his favorite status has increased, specifically when it comes to him winning by unanimous decision or submission. 

Cormier also stated that he believes this betting engagement on the interim champion, Cyril Gane, could be down to him having more avenues to victory than Ngannou, who will likely be reliant on his blistering power. 

Champion Ngannou has been underdog three times previously, and on all three occasions, Anik revealed he has come up good – on each occasion dispatching his opponent inside the distance. 

In terms of the co-main event, Deiveson Figueredo and Brandon Moreno do battle in the completion of their breathtaking trilogy. It’s one that bettors may have hesitancy in wagering on until they see the challenger ‘Figgy’ take the scales on Friday, with him having previously struggled with the flyweight limit.
