Here are my quick thoughts on the UFC Vegas 33 Opening Odds:

  • The main event of UFC Vegas 33 features top-15 ranked middleweights Sean Strickland and Uriah Hall going at it with the winner poised to take a major step forward at 185lbs. Strickland has looked like a man possessed since returning from his motorcycle accident last year as he’s won all three of his fights since returning to the UFC, with impressive victories over Jack Marshman and Brendan Allen in his last two outings to earn a big-name opponent in Hall. For “Primetime,” he is coming off of a leg break TKO win over Chris Weidman, and before that he beat Anderson Silva, Antonio Carlos Junior, and Bevon Lewis as he has looked phenomenal as of late. Still, with Strickland being the younger fighter, he opened as the betting favorite.
  • Another important fight on this card features top-10 ranked heavyweights Chris Daukaus and Shamil Abdurakhimov. Daukaus has won all three of his UFC fights by knockout since joining the promotion last year, while Abdurakhimov is a veteran who has wins over the likes of Marcin Tybura and Walt Harris on his resume. However, he hasn’t fought in nearly two years since a TKO loss to Curtis Blaydes, and that long layoff could prove detrimental to him here.**NOTE: This fight has been canceled since the time of writing.
