Urijah Faber will have the home crowd on his side Saturday during UFC Fight Night at Golden 1 Center when the local legend comes out of retirement. That doesn't mean Las Vegas believes in him, though.
Faber, 40, is the underdog (+260) in the co-main event. He's facing bantamweight 26-year-old Ricky Simon, who is the favorite at -330, on the Caesar's Palace sportsbook.
Faber is one of six Team Alpha Male fighters competing in the octagon in Sacramento. He's fighting for the first time since December 2016, a fight that he won by unanimous decision. Simon is 15-1-0 in his career, and hasn't lost since March 2016.
Folsom's Aspen Ladd will lead the way on the main card with a perfect 8-0 record. She's a -170 favorite to stay undefeated when she faces Germaine de Randamie (+140) in the bantamweight bout. But this is expected to be her toughest test yet.
De Randamine (8-3-0) hasn't lost since being defeated by Amanda Nunes in 2013, and has four straight victories.
Here are the odds for the rest of the main card:
- Mirsad Bektic (-175) vs. Josh Emmett (+145)
- Karl Roberson (-200) vs. Wellington Turman (+170)
- Marvin Vettori (-145) vs. Cezar Ferreira (+115)
