Jones vs Gustafsson II Betting Odds

For the first time in just 17 months, arguably the UFC’s greatest fighter graces the Octagon again as Jon»Bones» Jones has his highly anticipated rematch against Alexander»The Mauler» Gustafsson for the light heavyweight championship at UFC 232. The former winner, Jones, won the first fight back in UFC 165 at 2013 and is a -300 favorite for this fight with all the challenger, Gustafsson, coming back in +230.
Odds Analysis
The odds are a lot tighter than they were the first time that Jones and Gustafsson fought five decades back as Jones closed as a -800 favorite in that fight with Gustafsson coming back in +550. The battle was extremely close with many believing the Sweden native edged from the New Yorker to claim the championship, but the judges saw it in favour of Jones for a unanimous-decision success.
Many people will jump on the fact that Bones has tested positive for performance enhancers at just two of his last three fights, both against Daniel Cormier, and didn’t seem like himself when he was»clean» contrary to Ovince Saint Preux. From the OSP fight, though, Jones outstruck his rival 111-58 and landed three takedowns for a unanimous-decision win. The other area of concern is a very long layoff to the former champ but that is not a element in this fight as Gustafsson has been out more than Jones dealing with accidents. I believe the opening chances are right where they should be and I would not be surprised to find the line move just a little bit in Gustafsson’s favor.
Recently, Jones had a test that revealed some turinabol, the material he had been suspended for 15 months for, nevertheless in his substance. The Nevada State Athletic Commission did not have enough time to examine all the science supporting this so the struggle was moved to The Forum in Inglewood, California because their commission was dealing with this medication when it comes to Jones for the previous year and a half. USADA has stated that this was not a new ingestion of the prohibited substance and are allowing him to compete.
Breaking down Jones vs Gustafsson II
Jones (-300) is a very creative and talented fighter, using a high-level battle IQ along with above-average wrestling. Bones has shown on a few occasions (his first fight vs Gustafsson) that the heart of a winner as he has endured a lot of harm but continues pushing forward en route to a 22-1 record with his only loss being a disqualification. The 31-year-old’s last bout saw him knock Daniel Cormier out using a head kick, however, the fight was overturned into a no contest after a failed drug test.
Gustafsson (+230) is a exceptional fighter with excellent cardio who has no difficulty rising to the occasion. As stated above, his initial scrap with Jones was an epic war that left many wondering whose hand could be raised at the end of the 25 minutes. The Mauler put at a similar attempt against Daniel Cormier at UFC 192, but once again came up empty-handed. The Sweden native only has two other losses on his album, a entry loss to Phil Davis in his next UFC fight along with a knockout at the hands of this ever-dangerous Anthony Johnson in 2015. The 31-year-old has not entered the Octagon since his dominant knockout victory over Glover Teixeira in May of 2017.
Jon outstruck Gustafsson 137-114 within their very first meeting while each fighter landed a takedown. Both fighters were left bruised, battered and bloodied however, it was Jones who left with his hand raised. Ever since, The Mauler has been calling for a rematch while Bones went on to conquer three other challengers, including Daniel Cormier twice.
It’ll be interesting to see what improvements each fighter has made during the previous year and a half. Of course, Gustafsson was dealing with injuries, while Jones has been working on his craft while on suspension. The New York native said he didn’t train for his first bout with the Sweden native and that’s why it was so snug. We’ll figure out whether he had been telling the truth on December 29 in the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada for UFC 232.
