Jon Jones vs Alexander Gustafsson UFC 165 Betting Odds

Published on September 21st, 2013 5:00 pm EST
Jon Jones will look to make his record breaking sixth Light Heavyweight title defense when he does battle against Alexander Gustafsson in the main event of UFC 165.

Following Anderson Silva's loss to Chris Weidman earlier in the year, Jon "Bones" Jones assumed the title of mixed martial art's top pound-for-pound fighter. Jones will look to solidify his legacy when he fights Alexander Gustafsson later tonight.

Much has been made of Jones' physical gifts. He is tall and possesses a tremendous reach - in fact, many people have said that this is a major reason why Jones has been able to easily tear through the Light Heavyweight division. Well, the UFC is looking to even the score, so to speak, by pairing Jones with the 6 foot 5 Gustafsson.

According to the bookmakers, Gustafsson's height and reach will not do much good. Let's look at the current betting odds for tonight's fight:

Jon Jones, 1.14
Alexander Gustafsson, 6.00

So, according to these odds, a successful $100 wager on Jones would yield a total return of just $14, while a successful $100 bet on Gustafsson would result in a total profit of $500.

This just goes to show how much of an underdog Gustafsson will be on Saturday night.

The over/under for this fight is currently set at 2.5 rounds:

Over 2.5 Rounds, 2.00
Under 2.5 Rounds, 1.80
