If you weren’t able to score that 42″ television for $200 at Best Buy early this Black Friday morning, it’s time to start looking towards a different means at being able to provide Christmas gifts this year.

Thankfully, the Gambling Gods have released the early investment options for “UFC 140: Jones vs. Machida.” The December 10th event features a light heavyweight title scrap between champion Jon Jones (Pictured) and Lyoto Machida.

It will cost you a pretty penny if you intend to bet on Jones, because the division’s reigning king is a whopping 5-to-1 favorite to retain his crown against the Brazilian. Machida, on the other hand, checks in as a 3-to-1 longshot to dethrone “Bones.”

The Air Canada Centre in Toronto hosts the 205-pound affair.
