Betting Odds For Conor McGregor vs Anderson Silva Superfight Have Been Released

Betting Odds For Conor McGregor vs Anderson Silva Superfight Have Been Released

Betting odds for the potential Conor McGregor vs Anderson Silva superfight have been revealed - with Silva surprisingly ahead of the Irishman.

McGregor recently stirred the rivalry when he labelled Silva as the GOAT of UFC while naming himself second.

Silva then took to Instagram and offered McGregor a 'historic' fight to which McGregor said 'I accept.'

However, betting side Bovada have opened odds with 'The Spider' a -125 favourite over 'The Notorious' who is a -105 underdog.

You would need to bet $125 on Silva to make $100 profit while a $105 stake on McGregor would be needed to earn a return of $100.

The odds are surprising considering the way Silva's career has gone in the last few years.

Silva has been on the slide over the last few years and has only won one of his last seven fights.

His last victory came back in 2017 against Derek Brunson but it can't be denied that the former middleweight champion is a UFC legend.

The significant weight advantage is likely what gives the 45-year-old an advantage over McGregor, who's last fight came at welterweight.

Silva's message to McGregor read: "SUPER FIGHT 176.37LBS.

"I have a huge admiration for the great athlete that Conor is and I believe this superfight would be something historic for the sport, neither of us has anything else to prove.

"I believe UFC and (MMA) fans would like to watch this great martial spectacle, testing my martial skills against him would be fantastic."
