Records: Cerrone 36-15-0 | Morono 18-7-0

Fight result (2-way line or money line)

The veteran “Cowboy” Cerrone (-200) would cost you two times your potential return, but that’s super risky on a guy who hasn’t won in five fights, going 0-4-1. Cerrone’s last win was against Al Iaquinta May 4, 2019.

Still, the past five fights are against Niko Price, Anthony Pettis, Conor McGregor, Justin Gaethje and Tony Ferguson, or the who’s who of the division.

I expect Cerrone to get the stoppage, making CERRONE BY KO/TKO, DQ OR SUBMISSION (+290) a tremendous play on the 5-way line for the chance to nearly triple up.

Over/Under (O/U)

Play NO (+145): WILL THE FIGHT GO THE DISTANCE? for a nice value. I believe Cowboy gets the stoppage, so you have to play this end, too. UNDER 2.5 ROUNDS (+165) is an even better value.

If you’re nervous about Cerrone’s 0-4-1 run across the past five fights, you can just choose the fight finish without naming a specific fighter. Roll with KO/TKO/DQ (+330), as I think if there is a stoppage, the chances are greater for a knockout than a submission.
