Jon Jones will open at an astronomical -1300 favorite over new challenger Vitor Belfort who sits at a +700 underdog, some very enticing odds. You can find more sportsbook review information by clicking here.
Having turned down Chael Sonnen at UFC 151 on Sept. 1, and having been turned down by Lyoto Machida at UFC 152 just a few weeks later, it looks like Jones can finally set his crosshairs on a target, as the dominant champion recently accepted a fight against middleweight contender Vitor Belfort.
Though Belfort (21-9), a former UFC light-heavyweight champion, is certainly no stranger to the 205 lbs division, he hasn't fought at the weight since 2007. And at 6'0" he will most certainly be at a substantial size disadvantage to Jones who reportedly cuts down to lightweight limit of 205 lbs from 230 lbs. Jones will also employ a whopping 10.5 inch reach advantage and is 10 years the junior of the 35-year old Belfort.
