UFC 250: Cejudo v Aldo Odds

Brazilian legend Jose Aldo has been granted a last chance at a championship in his home nation, on May 9th as he takes on Henry Cejudo for the UFC bantamweight title.

The UFC 250 headline sees Cejudo defend his bantamweight crown for the first time since winning the belt last June from Marlon Moraes.

The two-division champion, Cejudo, will clash with the former featherweight king, Aldo, in Sao Paulo and it promises to be an exciting bout, as Brazil rarely ever disappoints as a venue for such an occasion.

Ahead of the event, we've looked into the Cejudo v Aldo odds with Sky Bet.

Cejudo the opening favourite

Unsurprisingly, it is the champion that has opened up as the betting favourite, but not by much.

At 1/2, Cejudo odds aren't exactly short for a defending fighter, particularly coming on the back of a four-fight win streak, with his last two performances proving his worth as the double champ.

'The Messenger' lived up to his nickname back in January 2019, stopping TJ Dillashaw in just thirty seconds, essentially saving the flyweight division. Cejudo stated that he was fighting for his fellow flyweights, following rumours that Dana White wanted to scrap the entire weight class.

It was certainly message received by the UFC President, with the American coming flying out of the blocks and becoming the first man to stop Dillashaw since 2011; he is a very powerful fighter for his size, and he showcased his aggressive mindset on that night.

The same can be applied to his last victory against Moraes, where he overcame adversity to win the fight by stoppage again. His ground and pound on the Brazilian was simply brutal, with the fight being stopped in the third after Moraes scored quite handsomely on many fans' cards.

Given his form on paper and champion status, there can be no denying Cejudo's tag as the fight favourite.

Jose Aldo still short

At 6/4, Jose Aldo's short price does surprise us, as he enters the bout on the back of two defeats. and in truth, has not been the fighter he once was, ever since Conor McGregor knocked him out in 13 seconds.

It's been a hard slog for the Brazilian since those two losses to Max Holloway back in 2017, with many labelling the former champion as 'past it'.

Since losing to McGregor Aldo, did beat Frankie Edgar immediately after. However, before his defeat to Alexander Volkanovski, the Brazilian lost a controversial decision to Moraes, hence Aldo's fair shot at the title in May. That, and, he was also lost just one fight in 11 years, prior to his loss to McGregor.

The fight against Moraes was his UFC bantamweight debut, where the Brazilian looked very shrivelled and deprived on the scales. Despite his appearance, he was the more pressing fighter at UFC 245, coming forward and dictating the tempo in the latter two rounds on the night.

Cejudo stated that he "deserved" a shot at the title on the back of such a performance, but we're sure fans would have been expecting a bit more of an underdog price for the Brazilian.

Fight analysis

Looking at the bout on paper, it is certainly an intriguing fight.

Coming in at 5ft 7, Aldo will be the tallest man that Cejudo has faced since his debut in the UFC. The Brazilian likes to move around the Octagon and he will certainly be looking to control the distance, to prevent the champ from shooting.

As we all know, one of the 'Cs' in 'Triple C's' nickname relates to his Olympic gold medal for freestyle wrestling, and going to the ground is where Cejudo will be trying to take this fight, especially considering Aldo's presence as a standup fighter.

Aldo is the more polished boxer coming into the bout and will want to maintain the fight on the feet for as long as possible. His management in keeping at arm's length will be vital, as he looks to pop the jab and work Cejudo down.

Similarly to the Moraes fight, the champ will likely have to take his time to work the inside of his opponent, as rushing in will play right into the Brazilian's hands. Should he get in the clinch, though, we struggle to see Aldo's defence preventing the takedown.

It's the type of stylistic matchup that makes the UFC such an intriguing spectacle, as we get to see two contrasting approaches, meet in the middle with a belt on the line.

With the fight still being a while away, SkyBet only have the outright UFC 250 odds at present.
