Although there won’t be any MMA action for the next couple of weeks, the Gambling Gods were adamant over keeping fans abreast on the latest betting odds for “UFC on Versus: Jones vs. Matyushenko” on August 1st.

The event takes place inside the San Diego Sports Arena in California and will be headlined by a light heavyweight clash between up-and-coming superstar Jon Jones and journeyman Vladimir Matyushenko. As expected, “Bones” is a significant favorite to continue down his dominant path and bump his record to 11-1.

Upset City Alert: Yushin Okami is 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. Ngo-stradamus is really feelin’ the ‘dog in this one.

The Versus Network will broadcast the show live beginning at 9PM ET/6PM PT.
