With the UFC ball closer to rolling once again, oddsmakers are back in business.

Early lines have been released for the UFC’s planned May 9 pay-per-view event, which is expected feature three title fights: an interim lightweight championship headliner between Tony Ferguson and Justin Gaethje; a bantamweight title tilt between champ Henry Cejudo and former two-time champion Dominick Cruz; and a featherweight title fight between champ Amanda Nunes and Felicia Spencer.

Betting site has also posted odds for whether the event — listed as UFC 250 — will even take place. The show is the UFC’s first since indefinitely postponing several events, including three in March and the UFC 249 PPV, amid fallout from the coronavirus pandemic. UFC 249 was originally set to be headlined by Ferguson and Khabib Nurmagomedov.

In regards to the event happening, “No” is currently a 2-1 favorite. That works out to a 40 percent implied probability that UFC 250 occurs as scheduled.

Nunes, a two-division champion defending her featherweight title for the first time, is the biggest favorite listed at -430, while Cejudo is a little higher than a 2-1 favorite over Cruz.
