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:

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."

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

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

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

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

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.

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

Wow, I think this fight is competitive

Gus has great size and great toughness.

I think Jones will take him down early and often, but Gus will not go away, and Gus is a threat in the later rounds.

It's probably a good line to start, but that -800 will probably drop into the -400 -500 range, it's not going the other way.

IMO, this is Jones toughest fight of his career.
