UFC Light Heavyweight Jon Jones

The time for talking is finally over, thank goodness because Chael Sonnen’s one-liners were once again getting quite stale, and it’s now time to place your bets. UFC 159 goes down tonight inside Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey.

Sonnen is pegged as a significant 6-to-1 longshot to dethrone reigning light heavyweight king Jon Jones (pictured) in tonight’s main attraction. Jones, meanwhile, is a whopping 10-to-1 odds-on favorite to steamroll Uncle Chael to post his fifth consecutive title defense.

From a betting standpoint, the co-main event between Michael Bisping and Alan Belcher will be more competitive. Bisping is a -175 favorite, while “The Talent” checks in just behind at +145.
