UFC poster Versus 2 Jon Jones Vlad Matyushenko

The longest MMA lull of 2010 will finally come to an end next Sunday when Jon Jones meets Vladimir Matyushenko inside the San Diego Sports Arena in California.

As expected, “Bones” is a significant favorite to continue down his dominant path and bump his record to 11-1. Despite Matyushenko’s decorated resume, the Gambling Gods have pegged the journeyman a 4-to-1 underdog against the fast-rising superstar.

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.

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

Here are the betting odds for the August 1st event (Courtesy of BetUS):

Matt Riddle -230
DaMarques Johnson +180

James Irvin -200
Igor Pokrajac +160

Jacob Volkman -125
Paul Kelly -105

Jake Ellenberger -170
John Howard +140

Tyson Griffin -300
Takanori Gomi +220

Yushin Okami -210
Mark Munoz +165

Jon Jones -600
Vladimir Matyushenko +400
