UFC bantamweight champion, Henry Cejudo, will defend his 135-pound title against former featherweight kingpin, Jose Aldo, in the UFC 250 pay-per-view (PPV) main event, scheduled for Sat., May 9, 2020 inside Ginasio do Ibirapuera in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

And he’ll do it as the -210 betting favorite.

That’s according to the number crunchers over at Best Fight Odds, who peg Aldo as the +180 underdog. Despite his legendary status, “Junior” (28-6) has struggled to stay consistent in his last couple of fights and remains an unproven commodity at 135 pounds.

That doesn’t mean this is a lock for Cejudo (15-2), who hasn’t seen action since last June. “Triple C” is a natural flyweight who bumped up in weight for the foreseeable future after finding early success against TJ Dillashaw and Marlon Moraes.

Fabricio Werdum and Alexey Oleinik will also compete at UFC 250, as will Antonio Rogerio Nogueira and Mauricio Rua; however, those odds have yet to be released.
