The two former Jackson MMA training partners Jon Jones and Rashad Evans are now scheduled to face-off, following Evan’s destruction of Phil Davis at UFC on Fox 2. Following the bout, the UFC announced UFC 145: Jones vs Evans in Atlanta, Georgia at the Philips Arena, on April 21.
With Jones dominating all combatants since his UFC debut, it is no surprise that Jones would be given the betting odds. However six-to-one by BetonFighting.com is a huge betting spread by any means. This past weeks fight between Sonnen and Bisping in comparison was a surprising five-to-one betting difference in favor of Sonnen. The bout proved to be a close fight with many convinced Bisping pulled the upset. Anyone with an inclination of Evans pulling the upset is likely jumping at this opportunity before the betting lines even out as they usually do closer to the fight.
