Jon Jones vs Rashad Evans odds: Who opened as the -475 favorite?

According to noted oddsmaker Nick Kalikas of, it's none other than Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones. "Bones" opens as a massive -475 favorite headed into his showdown against Rashad Evans, which is still awaiting a date, time and place. 

"Suga" comes in as the major underdog at +325.

Anyone jumping on this line with wallets wide open? Or do you expect a dramatic shift as we get closer and closer to fight night?

It's no surprise, really, that Jones is getting so much love from oddsmakers. The 24-year-old phenom has run through every opponent put across from him, including becoming just the second man to submit Quinton Jackson at UFC 135 on this past Sept. 24.

Does the same fate await Evans somewhere down the road? Or does his inside knowledge of Jones tendencies give him an edge that no other light heavyweight will enjoy?

Evans finally returned from a long layoff on Aug. 6 at UFC 133 to rematch Tito Ortiz in a 205-pound bout to determine if he was still ready to challenge for the division title.

Test passed ... with flying colors.

"Suga" Rashad dominated the contest having his way with "The Huntington Beach Bad Boy." He's doing what he can to convince us he'll do the same to his former teammate but should we believe him?

Can Evans end the Jonny "Bones" Era before it ever picks up any steam?

We're still a ways away from fight time, Maniacs, but who do you like for your money and who ya' got straight up?
