There's often a hangover immediately following a spectacular fight card like the one we had at UFC 266. But this week matchmakers found a way to pair two of the more violent light heavyweight contenders for a main event that will determine whether we'll continue to see grizzled veterans vying for the title or if there's a new young gun due for a shot.

There's a lot to like as a fight fan, so let's look if we can also find something to like in the betting lines.

Prelims start at 4 p.m. ET on ESPN+, and the main card begins at 7 p.m. ET on ESPN+.
