The Ultimate Fighting Championship breaks new ground in the Philippines with its Fight Night 66 card, headlined by a battle between two former championship fighters. If you’re looking to bet sportsbook odds on UFC Fight Night, here’s a quick betting breakdown of the top bouts inside the Octagon Saturday.

Frankie Edgar (-450) vs. Urijah Faber (+360)

This bout has plenty of name value, with Edgar a former UFC lightweight title holder and Faber the former famed featherweight champ in WEC. Edgar is taking a step down to 145 pounds to face Faber, who hasn’t been able to get over the hump in marquee fight since making the jump to the UFC. He’s fallen short with titles on the line and is a sizable underdog against the gritty Edgar Saturday. Edgar has rebounded from a three-fight skid with a trio of impressive victories and oddsmakers are counting on him to edge Faber with his boxing and size advantage.

Gegard Mousasi (-600) vs. Costas Philippou (+450)

The top sports betting sites are siding heavily with Mousasi in this middleweight matchup with the judo expert staying at middleweight after fighting at 205-pounds for a while. He held his own against Lyoto Machida in his 185-pound debut and recently knocked off legend Dan Henderson with a TKO victory in the opening round. He’s had trouble building momentum in the division but this bout with Philippou could be the push he needs. Mousasi has a size and reach advantage over Philippou, who hasn’t been in the cage in over a year. He’s coming off a rib injury and is 1-2 in his last three fights, picking up a knockout victory against Lorenz Larkin last May.

Mark Muñoz (+145) vs. Luke Barnatt (-165)

Barnatt will be looking to finish this fight after being burned by two split decision losses in his previous trips inside the cage. Take those close defeats out of the equation and the 6-foot-6 middleweight monster is a perfect 8-0 in his professional career. Munoz stepped in for the injured Clint Hester and is hoping to get his career back on track. He’s a tremendous wrestler but has been damaged goods – going 1-4 – since getting KO’d by Chris Weidman back in 2012.
