                    <p>Earlier today the UFC announced that Jon Jones would next defend his light heavyweight title against Alexander Gustafson. Jones will be a heavy favorite in the bout according to the first betting lines released today:</p>

At -800 to Gustafsson's +500, the line represents the second-highest opening number for a Jones title defense. He opened as high as -925 for his fight against Vitor Belfort this past September. Against Chael Sonnen in April at UFC 159, he opened -600 before climbing as high as -1100 at fight time. He won handily with a first-round TKO.

Oddessa said even at -800, the line could be low.

"It's one of those 'I  can't make the price high enough bouts,'" said Oddessa, who can be found at @mmaodds on Twitter. "On fight night, there won't be a betting favorites parlay that doesn't include Jon Jones."

White boy's got no chance.


Neither did the black boys when they fought Jones.

gustaff has no chance and dana promised machita a title fight what a fucker Phone Post

Ridiculous fight. Why isn't it Mousasi in there??

Giant Silva had a better change against Vasquez the 2nd time compared to this tripe.

I think we can finally admit Jones if pretty darn good at this fighting thing. Phone Post

I think Gustafsson has two s's.

Not shocking. I don't see how Alexander can stop Jon Jones from taking him down and dropping elbows.

Should be 10-1 Phone Post

No surprise. He looked mediocre against Thiago Silva and looked terrible against Shogun.

Im thinking Gus is going to have a long night. Jones is on a completely different level right now. Phone Post 3.0

gus is a legit contender. cant believe some people are bitching about this one.

I believe Gustafsson will beat Jones.
But sadly probably not this fight.
He needs a few more before he's ready i think.

But then again i'm partial 'cus swede. War Gus.

DanGold - For those that don't understand the way it works, it means if you bet $10 on Gustafson, you lose $10.

John 1 - No surprise. He looked mediocre against Thiago Silva and looked terrible against Shogun.

Looked mediocre while dominating Thiago and looked terrible while dominating Shogun? Phone Post


Justified, Gus not in the class of JBJ.

I like Gustafsson, but this won't be close.
