There are tons of must-watch fights on the upcoming card, especially the fight of Tony Ferguson against Justin Gaethje for the interim lightweight title. With UFC finally returning back to the sports scene since being on pause due to the coronavirus, there are loads of new sportsbooks bonuses that you must take a look at. Besides the Ferguson fight, there is also the Bantamweight champion Henry Cejudo taking on Dominick Cruz.

Prop Bets

Dominick Cruz via decision +300 odds

One of my favorite prop bets of the UFC 249 card as both Cruz and Cejudo should go the distance here. One important note is that both guys are not the best at finishing fights, each having more than 50% of their matches go to decision. As good as Cejudo is, the comeback story for Cruz is very intriguing and it is possible that he has something special up his sleeve. I have this fight going all the way to the card as Cruz to win at +300 is a solid value.

Justin Gaethje via TKO +180 odds

Because Khabib (the lightweight titleholder) had to pull out of his original fight with Ferguson (again), Gaethje stepped up and agreed to take this fight. It will also be fought for the interim lightweight title belt. Whoever wins this fight will more than likely get their shot at Khabib once sports are back to normal. I love Gaethje here as 18 of his 21 wins comes by means of KO/TKO. I love the extra sprinkle of value here as I will pair it with Gaethje winning as well.
