UPDATE: How the public is betting Merab Dvalishvili vs. Gustavo Lopez

Update June 11 7:35 pm: Ray Borg has pulled out of this fight for “personal reasons” and will be replaced by UFC newcomer Gustavo Lopez. Borg had last fought on May 13th against Gabriel Silva.

At UFC Fight Night 171, Merab Dvalishvili will have a scheduled fight in the bantamweight division, but with a back-up latecomer in Gustavo Lopez.

Dvalishvili has gone the distance in all five of his UFC fights, winning the last three after dropping his first two. His last outing was against Casey Kenney in Februrary, but he’s not someone you’ll want on your fantasy roster with just three stoppages in 10 UFC fights. Despite the lack of stopping power, he’s a huge favorite as the window opens.

Lopez goes from the sidelines to the main card in a hurry. He’s 11-4 in his MMA career, winning his last three bouts by first round stoppage in 2:19 or less in the Combate promotion. The 30-year-old out of Wapato, Washington has 10 overall wins before the judges are needed.
