To the surprise of no one, fast-rising light heavyweight superstar Jon Jones is a significant favorite entering his August 1st scrap against veteran Vladimir Matyushenko.
Although Jones will likely exit the Energy Solutions Arena in Salt Lake City, Utah with a convincing victory, -600 is a little too rich for my blood, but certainly not enough to hop on Vlady’s side of the fence.
My, how Takanori Gomi has fallen on some hard times …
Here are the early betting lines for the freebie Versus broadcast:
Jake Ellenberger -155
John Howard +125
Joe Stevenson -240
Takanori Gomi +190
Yushin Okami -210
Mark Munoz +165
Jon Jones -600
Vladimir Matyushenko +400
