Will UFC 128 on March 19 in Newark be the coronation of Jon "Bones" Jones? Oddsmakers think so, what with Jones opening up as the big favorite (-155) for his light heavyweight title shot against Mauricio "Shogun" Rua.
Bettors seem to agree with that line from Bodog.com. As of the time of this post, Jones is now -200 (bet $200 to win $100). That means lots of the early money has been placed on Jones, causing the oddsmakers to adjust the line.
Rua, the champion, is at +160, which makes for a great value bet, if you're into that kind of thing.
