Jose Aldo Opens as -175 Favorite Over Frankie Edgar at UFC 153



Jose Aldo will enter UFC 153 as the favorite over challenger Frankie Edgar, but the odds are much, much closer than his previously scheduled fight.

According to Nick Kalikas from MMAOddsbreaker.com, Edgar will open as a -175 favorite over former UFC lightweight champion Frankie Edgar. Find Sportsbook reviews and more sports information here.

Edgar is a slight underdog with the betting odds placing him at +145.

The difference for the oddsmakers in comparison to the previously scheduled main event for UFC 153 is quite large however.

Jose Aldo was a 6 to 1 favorite over previous opponent Erik Koch with the incumbent champion coming in at -600 odds, while Koch was the betting underdog at +400.

Frankie Edgar steps into the bout on short notice, but obviously has the credentials to demand much closer odds even against one of the top pound-for-pound champions in the sport in Jose Aldo.

Edgar faces Aldo in the main event of UFC 153 headed to Brazil on Oct 13
