UFC Fight Night Austin odds: Cerrone betting favorite vs. Medeiros for Sunday’s card

Donald Cerrone will be looking to halt a three-fight losing streak on Sunday when he meets Yancy Medeiros in a welterweight clash at UFC Fight Night Austin as a -155 betting favorite at sportsbooks monitored by

Cerrone has been stopped by TKOs on punches in two of his three recent defeats, including an opening-round loss to Darren Till as a -150 favorite at UFC Fight Night 118, and sports a 32-10 professional MMA record going into Sunday’s bout at Frank Erwin Center.

Cerrone’s recent slide has also derailed his otherwise successful move to the UFC welterweight division. After falling in the first round to rival Rafael dos Anjos as a +145 bet in a bid for the UFC lightweight title at UFC on Fox 17, Cerrone recorded impressive victories in his first four contests as a welterweight, claiming Performance of the Night bonuses in three outings.

However, he has tumbled to No. 11 on the UFC welterweight rankings during the longest losing streak of his career.

Medeiros enters Sunday’s clash as a +125 underdog. The 30-year-old Hawaiian has enjoyed success during his brief stint in the UFC welterweight division, finishing opponents in three contests since moving up from lightweight, including a third-round TKO victory over Alex Oliveira as a +265 underdog at UFC 218 that garnered “The Kid” a Fight of the Night bonus.

Overall, Medeiros has earned the win in six of his past eight octagon appearances, and has emerged as the No. 15 challenger among UFC welterweights.

Elsewhere on the UFC Fight Night odds for Sunday, slugger Derrick Lewis looks to rebound from his first loss in seven outings as he takes on fellow heavyweight Marcin Tybura as a narrow +115 underdog.

Lewis has built a reputation as a power puncher with eight wins by KO or TKO since joining the UFC four years ago, but he got a taste of his own medicine last time out, suffering a fourth-round TKO loss as a -170 favorite in a UFC Fight Night 110 slugfest against Mark Hunt.

Tybura is also coming off a loss in his last outing, dropping a five-round unanimous decision to Fabricio Werdum as a +245 underdog at UFC Fight Night 121, but faces off against Lewis as solid -145 chalk.

Also on Sunday, James Vick is pegged as a heavy -235 favorite in his tilt with fellow lightweight Francisco Trinaldo, while Thiago Alves sits as a -175 bet in his welterweight clash with Curtis Millender.
