UFC 219 Odds and Predictions: Cyborg vs. Holm

UFC 219 is set to take place in Las Vegas on December 30th. Normally, the UFC’s December event is allowed as the big end-of-year show with a card that is piled from top to base. However, the current menu for UFC 219 lacks just a little sizzle.
The main event has Cris Cyborg protecting her featherweight title against another ferocious puncher at Holly Holm. On paper, it may look one-sided, but recall the last time we doubted Holm in perceived mismatch title fight?
It is a great matchup, to be sure. Yet, there are worries that it won’t sell pay-per-views. Thus now, rumors are swirling about last-minute additions to the card, including Nate Diaz in some capacity. A trilogy struggle with Conor McGregor was the fantasy, but that will not be happening as McGregor is coping with some fallout from his Bellator fiasco and bumping out a drug cartel associate. Oops.
Those transgressions will continue to keep the Irishman out of the UFC octagon for an extended period of time, if not permanently.
In terms of Diaz, he seemingly has been offered everything but the moon. However, the Stockton native is demanding a celestial figure, where I mean bags and bags of money, before he steps inside an Octagon again.
While one or two more bouts could be inserted to provide the card some extra pugilistic goodness, it appears that the main event is set, and I’m ok with that. What fans really need at this point are quality fights, not only big names. And in addition to Cyborg/Holm, we’re also going to see Khabib Nurmagomedov vs. Edson Barboza, a huge battle that could give us another lightweight competition. The weigh-in might be just as striking as the battle handed Nurmagomedov struggles to make 155.
While we wait patiently for more spice to be added, let’s stir the existing pot and divide the primary and co-main events of this evening to your betting needs.
