UFC Fight Night 80, also dubbed “The Paige and Sage Show” seems to have seen more line movement than the average Fight Pass card, so my guess is that it will be the most viewed UFC Fight Pass card in the online network’s short, two-year history. Initially, public support came in on Paige VanZant at -165 in the evening’s main event, and she got as high as -250 at one point. Money slowly but surely started rolling in on Rose Namajunas, who saw more action her way at the sportsbooks following yesterday’s weigh-ins. While there is support for both fighters in the evening’s headliner, it is Sage Northcutt in the co-main event who has received all the love, going from -705 to -1100 and ultimately being the biggest betting favorite not only on this card, but all three UFC fight cards this week. Northcutt’s opponent Cody Pfister plays the role of the underdog for the third straight time in the UFC and plans for his second straight upset, after cashing in as a +216 underdog against Yosdenis Cedeno at UFC 189 back in July. On the evening’s preliminary card, surging bantamweight prospect Aljamain Sterling looks to pick up his fourth straight Octagon victory against Brazilian veteran Johnny Eduardo, who looks to give the undefeated 26-year old his first taste of defeat. Eduardo is on a two-fight winning streak and is coming off the biggest victory of his professional mixed martial arts career, when he knocked out former WEC bantamweight champion Eddie Wineland in the first round of action. He recorded one of the biggest upsets in UFC history as a massive +735 underdog. Heading into this contest, the 35-year old veteran aims to score a second consecutive major upset. Sterling opened as a -400 favorite and saw heavy public support, being bet all the way up to -1000 at one point, and then settling around -700 and -750, where it had been swimming around the past few days. However, following yesterday’s weigh-ins, a lot of action came in on the Brazilian and dropped Sterling to -540. Could it be sharp action coming in on Eduardo? Doubtful, but I guess we’ll have to tune in to find out. Underdogs have not really gotten much love on this card, but the one dog the public seems to be backing most is Brazil’s Thiago Santos, who rides a two-fight winning streak inside the Octagon with two finishes. He opened at +190 but was sitting around +275 not long ago and has now been bet all the way down to +200. There has been public action on both sides, as Theodorou received most of the initial action and got bet up to -500 at one point, but now sits at -220. The public is split on this one, which should be a good fight to kick off the evening’s main card. Theodorou will look to stay undefeated, and Santos will go for the upset. The Brazilian is no stranger to scoring upsets, having already recorded one of the biggest upsets in the promotion’s history with a first round knockout of Ronny Markes, where he cashed as a +660 underdog.
