UFC 275 features two title fights and another high-profile matchup on the main card Saturday night with the betting public siding with most of the underdogs.

The majority of bets are on underdogs Glover Teixeira, Taila Santos and Jake Matthews with the only favorite getting the majority of bets on the main card being Jack Della Maddalena. This is courtesy of data provided by BetMGM on Saturday.

While Teixeira is getting the majority of bets as a +165 underdog in his heavyweight title defense against Jiri Prochazka, the challenger is getting more of the handle at -200. It’s not uncommon to see that split with such a heavy favorite.

Teixeira, 42, is riding a six-fight winning streak and will be making his first title defense since defeating Jan Blachowicz in October. Prochazka is undefeated in two UFC fights, winning both by TKO/KO.

In the co-main event, bettors are taking their chance on Santos, the biggest underdog of the main card. With 78% of bets and 58% of the money on Santos, her odds have come down from +575 to +425. Shevchenko, who has dominated every opponent not named Amanda Nunes, is -650 after opening -900.

The other marquee fight of the night is a rematch between Jedrzejcyzk and Zhang. Zhang is the -175 favorite and looking for her first win since March of 2020, when she took a split decision against Jedrzejcyzk. She then dropped back-to-back fights against Rose Namajunas.

Jedrzejcyzk (+145) is getting over 70% of both the bets and handle at BetMGM.

Elsewhere on the main card, which will air on PPV and ESPN+, Jake Matthews is a +115 underdog against Andre Fialho (-140). Almost 80% of bets are on the underdog.

Della Maddalena (-165) is the lone favorite the public is buying with 62% of bets and 86% of dollars on him to beat Ramazan Emeev (+135).
