To the surprise of no one, fast-rising light heavyweight superstar Jon Jones is a significant favorite to dominate Vladimir Matyushenko on August 1st at “UFC on Versus: Jones vs. Matyushenko.”
Although Jones will likely exit the San Diego Sports Arena in San Diego, California with a convincing victory, -600 is a little too rich for my blood. Although, it’s certainly not enough to warrant hopping on Vlady’s side of the fence.
Understanding the event is still a few weeks out and the odds are likely to change as game time approaches, it was fairly surprising to see the Gambling Gods peg Yushin Okami more than a 2-to-1 favorite against Mark Munoz. While Okami is one of the most talented Japanese fighters to ever grace an Octagon canvas, his conservative style may not fare too well with Munoz’s relentless attack.
