UFC Light Heavyweight Jon Jones

A day after the complete roster for “UFC 128: Shogun vs. Jones” was officially announced, the Gambling Gods have decided to release the betting lines for the card’s main bouts.

After trouncing Ryan Bader at UFC 128, Jon Jones was presented with a shot at the brass ring after teammate Rashad Evans was stung by the injury bug. While the 23-year-old has only 13 professional fights under his non-championship belt, it appears there isn’t a current 205-pounder alive “Bones” wouldn’t be favored against.

The challenger enters the biggest scrap of his budding career as more than a 2-to-1 favorite to capture the crown. Shogun checks in at +165 for his first UFC title defense.

UFC 128 takes place March 19th inside the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey.
