Last Saturday (29), Alex Poatán brutally knocked out Jiri Prochazka in the main fight of UFC 303 to defend the light heavyweight belt (up to 93 kg) for the second time and continue his meteoric trajectory in the organization. All this, however, is not enough for the champion to be a favorite against any of the four most likely rivals for his immediate future.

In initial odds made available by the North American bookmaker 'Sportsbetting.ag', Alex Poatán appears as 'zebra' for duels against heavyweight champions (up to 120,2 kg) Jon Jones e Tom aspinall, against light heavyweight Magomed Ankalayev and even in a new meeting with the former middleweight champion (up to 83,9 kg) Israel adesanya.

This means that an investment of R$100 in the Brazilian would return the bettor R$600 in case of victory.

Interim heavyweight champion, Tom aspinall is also considered a strong favorite in a hypothetical duel against Alex Poatán, with odds of 1,25, against 4,0 for the Brazilian. In the same example, an investment of R$100 would return the bettor R$400 in this case.


Most likely rival for the immediate future of Alex Poatán for belonging to the champion's current weight category, Magomed Ankalayev he would also be a favorite, with odds of 1,40, against 3,10 for the Brazilian, meaning that a bet of R$100 on the belt owner would return R$310.

Executioner, victim and Poatan's greatest rival in martial arts, Israel adesanya He also has slight favoritism for a hypothetical and unlikely trilogy, with odds of 1,54, against 2,55 for the champion. As a result, a bet of R$100 would return R$255 if the Brazilian wins again.
