With UFC Light-Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones calling out former UFC Heavyweight Champion and current WWE Superstar Brock Lesnar, this past Saturday night, many are wondering if this fight will take place.
While Lesnar is signed to a WWE contract till April of next year, we’ve seen that not limit his UFC opportunities as he faced off against Mark Hunt at UFC 200 in July, 2016 and go on to compete at WWE’s Summerslam event a month later.
Even if Lesnar takes the fight against the new UFC Light-Heavyweight Champion, it seems that Las Vegas based Bovada has released early odds and they are not in the favor of the North Dakota born Heavyweight.
Will Jon Jones face Brock Lesnar in the UFC before July 15th 2018?
Yes -160 (5/8)
No +120 (6/5)
Jon Jones vs Brock Lesnar*
Jon Jones -350 (2/7)
Brock Lesnar +265 (53/20)
*odds only applicable if bout takes place before July 15, 2018
If this fight happens, many are favoring the Light-Heavyweight to defeat Lesnar, but who knows what the future holds for either man between now and 2018.
