UFC Jon Jones Rashad Evans

If you were to ask the Gambling Gods, Rashad Evans shouldn’t even bother showing up to his long-awaited shootout against light heavyweight king Jon Jones.

If the arch enemies battle at UFC 145 as anticipated, Jones will enter Philips Arena in Atlanta, Georgia a whopping 6-to-1 odds-on favorite to retain his title. “Suga,” on the other hand, checks in as a 4-to-1 longshot to dethrone the youngest champion in UFC history.

The bitter rivals are expected to meet April 21st in the ATL.
