Octagon officials might be thrilled Vitor Belfort manned up to face light heavyweight king Jon Jones (Pictured) at UFC 152, but the Gambling Gods profess “The Phenom” shouldn’t even bother showing up on September 22nd.
If you thought Jones was a significant favorite to dispose of Dan Henderson at UFC 151 as a 7.5-to-1 odds-on favorite, “Bones” is pegged as a whopping 12-to-1 favorite to throttle the former 205-pound champion in Canada.
Belfort, meanwhile, checks in as a 7-to-1 longshot.
UFC 152 takes place inside Air Canada Centre in Toronto.
