Jones vs Lesnar Betting Odds

“Brock Lesnar, if you want to know what it feels like to get your ass kicked by a guy that weighs 40 pounds less than you, come meet me in the Octagon.”

And with that, Jon Jones has kicked off a whirlwind of speculation that is going to partially dominate the MMA landscape for months.

Jones came back at UFC 214 and reclaimed the UFC light heavyweight championship belt he never lost in the Octagon by stopping Daniel Cormier in the third round. With that victory, “Bones” reminded fans why he is arguably the best mixed martial artist in the history of the sport. However, a contest against the massive human being known as “Brock Lesnar” would put all those skills to the test.

Lesnar, who retired from MMA earlier this year, is still under contract with the WWE until after WrestleMania 34 (April 8, 2018). However, there is plenty of speculation that “The Beast Incarnate” is leaning toward not re-signing with the wrestling promotion.

In the MMA world, Lesnar would still be subject to finishing the remainder of his punishment after testing positive for a banned substance following his UFC 200 bout with Mark Hunt. That six months combined with Lesnar’s current WWE contract means he likely would be unable to fight in the UFC until at least late 2018.

All the logistics aside, sportsbooks have already opened odds for the massive superfight. Jones hit the board on July 31, less than 48 hours after UFC 214, as a hefty -350 favorite with Lesnar coming back at +265.
