Jon Jones Betting Underdog Against Francis Ngannou
Former UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones is set to face Francis Ngannou in early 2023, and the odds have shifted in the fight.
Former UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones would be in an interesting situation should he secure a fight with Francis Ngannou.
According to SportsBetting.ag, Jones would enter the Octagon right now as a betting underdog were they to meet. The site lists Jones at plus-130 with Ngannou at -150.
That has shifted, though, since the fight was first rumored. Back in January, Ngannou was listed at -220 and Jones plus-180. The numbers shifted in August to what they are today.
Reports have surfaced that the fight is expected to take place in March at UFC 285. Curtis Blaydes would serve as the replacement should something happen to either Ngannou, the reigning UFC heavyweight champion, or Jones.
If Blaydes steps in, Jones moves to a minus-265 favorite while Ngannou would be minus-350 against Blaydes.
