With his win over Phil Davis at the UFC on FOX 2 event, Rashad Evans has earned himself a shot at the lightheavyweight title held by Jon Jones. The drama for this matchup has been building over the last year as for some reason or another it wasn't able to happen. Now with both fighters healthy and ready to go they will square off in April at UFC 145 in Atlanta.
Today, betting site BetOnFighting.com, opened the betting lines and champion Jon Jones opened as a huge favorite:
Jon Jones: -600
Rashad Evans: +400
For those unfamiliar with how betting on mixed martial arts, the favorite is assigned a negative number which is a multiple of how favored for a bet of $100.00. Jones is at -600 and therefore a bettor would need to bet $600.00 dollar to win $100.0.
As an underdog, Rashad Evans is assigned a positive number which is a multiple of his chances for a $100.00 bet. In this case, with Bisping at +400, the bettor would stand to win $400.00 if he/she placed a $100.00 bet on Evans.
