rematch

Following Charles Oliveira’s impressive knockout of Beneil Dariush at UFC 289, solidifying his position as the No. 1 lightweight contender, the odds are stacked against him in a potential rematch against reigning champion Islam Makhachev.

Newly released odds for the second fight between Makhachev and Oliveira indicate that the Dagestani native is a massive favorite. The current odds from BetOnline.ag are as follows:

Charles Oliveira: +285
Islam Makhachev: -350

Initially, Makhachev was listed as a -400 favorite for the rematch, but bets placed on Oliveira have slightly lowered those numbers. Nevertheless, Makhachev remains the overwhelming favorite to emerge victorious.

Considering the current odds, a $100 wager on Makhachev would yield a mere $28.57 in profit, while a $100 bet on Oliveira would result in a $285 payout if he manages to win. Makhachev’s implied winning percentage stands at 78 percent, while Oliveira’s is a modest 26 percent.

Given their previous encounter in October, where Makhachev dominated Oliveira with a formidable display of striking and ground skills, it’s unsurprising that Makhachev is heavily favored to win again.

In their initial bout, Makhachev dismantled Oliveira in less than two rounds, ultimately securing victory with an arm-triangle choke submission, thus becoming the new UFC lightweight champion.

Since then, Makhachev successfully defended his title with a unanimous decision win against UFC featherweight king Alexander Volkanovski, while Oliveira rebounded with a win over Dariush.

At present, no official decision has been made regarding Makhachev’s next opponent. The champion aims to return in October when the UFC heads to Abu Dhabi.
