The UFC is known for having some of the wildest and hardest-hitting fights in all of combat sports, but what are some of the big potential bouts we could see in 2022?
As has always been the case, fans have been fantasy booking some major matchups over the next year, and some of them could actually happen.
Some are likely enough that oddsmakers are already offering lines on the outright winner for the as of yet announced contests.
Here are some of the potential UFC fights that we could see in 2022 and what their current betting odds are.
UFC Potential Fights 2022
- Interestingly, SkyBet has odds available for this contest between two of the biggest names in the UFC’s Lightweight division. It’s more likely that we’ll see McGregor vs Diaz 3 first, but McGregor sits as the favourite for this potential bout.
- McGregor to win: 1/3
- Ferguson to win: 9/4
- Speaking of Diaz, SkyBet also has odds available for a potential showdown with Poirier. It makes sense that Poirier is the favourite, having defeated McGregor on to occasions in 2022.
- Poirier to win: 1/4
- Diaz to win: 3/1
- This is a big one if the UFC are able to pull it off. The chances aren’t likely, with Jones not technically in the Heavyweight division and Ngannou having already fought against Gane. Still, SkyBet has Ngannou as the favourite for the potential fight.
- Ngannou to win: 4/9
- Jones to win: 13/8
- This is an intriguing contest, as the P4P great Usman has pretty much cleared out the top challengers in the division, including Covington, Burns and Masvidal. It probably won’t happen in 2022, as Chimaev is still ranked outside of the top 10, but it is a potential fight for 2023 or beyond. Either way, SkyBet has odds for the fight.
- Usman to win: 8/13
- Chimaev to win: 5/4
Hopefully, we’ll be able to see at least one of these big bouts by the end of 2022!
