UFC NEWS | At -600 Jones Opens As Huge Favorite Over Evans


Now set to square off for the UFC’s light-heavyweight title in April, Jon Jones and Rashad Evans will finally get to settle their year-long grudge match.

Evans boasts one of the most impressive resumes and records in his division, with only one loss and victories over the likes of Chuck Liddell and Rampage Jackson he remains the rightful number two ranked 205’er.

Last weekend he fought the undefeated Phil Davis in a lopsided five-round fight that he won via unanimous decision but apparently his performance wasn’t enough to impress odds makers.

The betting line for this UFC 145 main event opened up last night and they have put Rashad in a major underdog role. It’s bad, it’s really bad. At six-to-one Jones is the huge betting favorite going into this fight, but should he be?
