Islam Makhachev and Alexander Volkanovski will clash in a rematch for the lightweight championship at UFC 294, while former welterweight champion Kamaru Usman will face Khamzat Chimaev in the co-main event.
DraftKings Sportsbook is offering up to $1,250 in bonus bets to all new customers who sign up with a DraftKings promo code before the card begins. For even more promos, have a look at the best promos and bonus codes.
Volkanovski was narrowly defeated by Makhachev via unanimous decision when they met at UFC 284 in February earlier this year. It was the eighth time that champions in different divisions fought one another, and it was the first time the UFC’s number-one pound-for-pound fighter faced the number two.
As the anticipation continues to build ahead of their historic rematch, DraftKings is letting all customers who did not previously have accounts sign up with a DraftKings promo code with the promise they can unlock up to $1,250 in prizes.
It’s very easy to redeem DraftKings’ new-user offer. Just follow these steps.
The new-user bonus comes in three distinct parts. The first is a $50 bonus bet that is accredited to users as soon as they have made their first deposit. The second is a 20% deposit match up to $1,000 on a user’s first deposit. The third is a bet $5 to win $200 guarantee no matter if the first bet hits or misses.
All winnings come in the form of bonus bets, which are essentially credits that can be redeemed exclusively on DraftKings. Bonus bets cannot be withdrawn for cash or transferred, but they can be used to win cash prizes with winning wagers.
All bonus bets will be awarded as soon as they are processed. The bet $5 to win $200 offer will see users rewarded with eight $25 bonus bets. All bonus bets must be used within seven days, or else they will expire.
Bonus bets cannot be used as a qualifying wager for other promotional opportunities.
Volkanovski accepted the fight with just 12 days' notice. Will that be enough time for him to drop about 25 pounds as the UFC returns to the UAE for the first time since last October?
Here’s a look at DraftKings’ betting odds for the bout.

|Islam Makhachev||-5.5 (-145)||Over 4.5 (-125)||-290|

Makhachev stole the title from Charles Oliveira via second-round submission last October. He has a professional record of 24-1-0 and has not been in the ring since he was pushed to the brink by his challenger.
Volkanovski (26-2-0) was in the ring at featherweight in July and dominated Yair Rodriguez in what was a reminder of his standing not only in the division, but in the pound-for-pound rankings.
Volkanovski is known to tinker with his style between fights and is taking a huge risk accepting a fight against an opponent he recently lost to on short notice. But he’s also got nothing to lose in that respect.
Also on the card are Usman (20-3-0) and Chimaev (12-0-0). The former won his first 15 fights before being defeated by Leon Edwards consecutively, and he’s now moving up to 185 pounds to face the undefeated Chimaev.
Here’s the full card.
