John Moraga vs Demetrious Johnson Betting Odds

Published on July 27th, 2013 1:05 pm EST
Demetrious "Mighty Mouse" Johnson will be looking to successfully defend his Flyweight title when he does battle against John Moraga in the main event of UFC on Fox 8.

Demetrious Johnson enters this fight on a three fight winning streak, having taken decisions over John Dodson, Joseph Benavidez and Ian McCall. The win over Benavidez was in the final of the Flyweight tournament, and Johnson was awarded the title after that win.

John Moraga, on the other hand, is currently in the midst of a long winning streak that extends all the way back to December of 2010. Moraga has won his two UFC fights so far, defeating Chris Cariaso at UFC 155 and Ulysses Gomez at UFC on Fox: Shogun vs Vera.


"Mighty Mouse" enters this fight as the heavy favorite to win:

Demetrious Johnson, -500
John Moraga, +350

According to these odds, a successful $500 bet on Johnson would return a total profit of $100, while a successful $100 wager on Moraga would result in a total profit of $350.

As you can see, Johnson is the big favorite to win on Saturday night, with most people expecting that he will win via a dominant decision.

Will Moraga grind out Johnson over five rounds? Probably not. Moraga's best chance of a victory is likely catching "Mighty Mouse" in some sort of a submission.

Can he do it? We'll find out on Saturday night.
