Two title fights highlight UFC 296, as the final PPV of the year brings an explosive card. In the co-main event, Alexandre Pantoja defends the UFC flyweight title against #2 Brandon Royval. To close out the card reigning UFC welterweight champion Leon Edwards defends his belt against Colby Covington. Coverage of the main card begins at 10 p.m. ET on ESPN+ PPV.

Pantoja (26-5) has won his last four, including a split decision victory over Brandon Moreno at UFC 290 in which he captured the flyweight title. Royval (15-6) has reeled off three wins in a row, his last two coming by first-round stoppage.

Edwards (21-3-1) will be defending the welterweight title for a second time, after beating Kamaru Usman twice, once for the title and once after. The savvy fighter out of England has not lost a fight since 2015 and is riding an 11-fight win streak. Covington (17-3) somehow seems to find his way onto a main event and for good reason. Arguably one of the premier personalities in the sport, Covington has not made an appearance in the octagon since a 2022 decision win over Jorge Masvidal.

The highly anticipated event takes place on Saturday, December 16. Before the action gets underway, here’s a look at the full list of odds courtesy of DraftKings Sportsbook.
