Here are my initial thoughts on the Opening Odds for Cage Warriors 124:

  • The main event of CWFC 124 features the promotion’s lightweight champion Agy Sardari (14-2) defending his title against Joe McColgan (7-3-1). The 28-year-old Sardari has won his last eight fights in a row and is coming off of back-to-back split decision wins over Donovan Desmae and Jack Grant in CWFC title fights. As for McColgan, he is coming off of a knockout win over Kieran Lister after losing via stoppage to current UFC lightweight Mason Jones. McColgan certainly has the finishing prowess to give Sardari problems in this fight, but not surprisingly, the defending lightweight champion opened up as the betting favorite here.
  • The co-main event of CWFC 124 is a welterweight bout between David Bear (9-1) and Justin Burlinson (5-0). The 30-year-old Bear has been a veteran of the sport for nearly a decade and he has won his last two fights heading into this bout. As for Burlinson, the 24-year-old prospect is undefeated in his career and is making his CWFC debut in this fight after having fought for Bellator and BAMMA previously. Burlinson opened up as a big favorite in this fight, and given the fact that he’s super young and has never lost before, that opening number shouldn’t come as a surprise even though he’s coming off of a two-year layoff and is still unproven as a pro.
