Jon Jones is a considerable favorite to defend the light-heavyweight title at UFC 239 next month. But, you wouldn’t really know that based off the new promo the company’s shared out.

Jones will battle Thiago Santos at the July 6th card, and while there’s no denying that the latter is ridiculously dangerous, the consensus is that Jones’ comprehensive game will win out. Jones is currently the favorite to win the contest with odds ranging from -555 to -700.

UFC 239 will take place in Las Vegas, Nevada (line-up via MMA Mania).
