At UFC 110, lightweight George Sotiropoulos entered his scrap against Joe Stevenson a 2-to-1 underdog. After pulling off the biggest upset of the night, gamblers have been itching to see where their next MMA payday will come from.

The UFC’s next major show will feature a light heavyweight bout between Brandon Vera and the up-and-coming Jon Jones on March 21st inside the Odeum Colorado in Broomfield, Colorado. It will be the organization’s debut on Versus.

Here are the early betting lines courtesy of our sponsors at BetUS.com:

Cheick Kongo -500 vs. Paul Buentello +350

Junior Dos Santos -300 vs. Gabriel Gonzaga +220

Jon Jones -260 vs. Brandon Vera +200

Ngo-Stradamus’ initial thoughts: Don’t know if I’m more surprised that Kongo is a 5-to-1 favorite over a reputable Buentello, or that Vera is a 2-to-1 dog against the talented youngster.
