Renan Ferreira's first-minute TKO win over Ryan Bader Saturday night secured a fight against Francis Ngannou in what will be the former UFC champ's first PFL bout.


"We opened Ngannou as a hefty favorite over Ferreira, and the line has held steady through the first day of wagering. You can see the odds below," BetOnline advised.

Additionally, following what transpired Saturday night at UFC Mexico, Ilia Topuria's next opponent odds have shifted drastically. Don't forget that Topuria is currently a -256 favorite (opened -240) against Alexander Volkanovski.

"Francis, where you at? I'm waiting for you," Ferreira called out after the KO win.

Ngannou had already hinted about a return to the UFC last week.

"I think the winner of this is the guy I'm going to fight in my MMA return," Ngannou told ESPN. "It is my intention to return to the sport. When exactly, I think depends on March 8. [Ferreira and Bader] are both champions and one of them is going to be a 'Champ Champ.' So, I think there isn't a better way to find an opponent [for me], since I am a champion myself."

And, finally, in case anyone is still monitoring the meanderings of the mindless Conor McGregor, there are odds on whether or not he'll get in the octagon this year.
