Kalikas (@FightOdds) explained the science behind the betting lines for UFC Fight Night 80: Namajunas vs. VanZant, The Ultimate Fighter 22 Finale: Team McGregor vs. Team Faber and UFC 194, and how business picks up when his industry is faced with three cards in as many days.

Along with discussing the upcoming odds, Kalikas talked about the massive upset at UFC 193, when Holly Holm defeated Ronda Rousey for the UFC women’s bantamweight title.
