Jones +160, Gane -185
For the first time in nearly 14 years, Jon Jones is the underdog in a UFC fight. The last opponent favored to beat him was the late Stephan Bonnar at UFC 94 on January 31st, 2009. Since then, Jones has fought Daniel Cormier, Rampage Jackson, Glover Teixeira, and more and has been a heavy favorite against all of them.
Jones has not fought in 3 years, and his last two fights went to extremely close decisions against Light Heavyweights. He’s now moved up a weight class to fight bigger and stronger opposition, and the oddsmakers don’t like his chances.
