UFC 128 Bet Pick: Mauricio "Shogun" Rua vs. Jon Jones

Jon Jones was the early favorite and money has come in steady on Jones driving to current -185 odds and higher than -200 odds at some online sportsbooks. Jon Jones only loss is a DQ from a vicious illegal elbow in the Matt Hamill fight. Jon Jones is extremely athletic and technically skilled and he has followed up the hype with results. Jones has the biggest reach in the UFC at an incredible 84.5 inches. Jones 8 inch reach advantage and incredible athleticism has led to the big chalk over Rua. Shogun is no slouch after 2 wars with Machida who is one of the most elusive fighters with a uniqu style. Shogun’s kick boxing and BJJ will be a good match for Jones. Love the betting value on Rua at +155 odds. Rua has the big fight experience and more importantly the inside counter punching power that is needed to strike Jones. Rua is very patient and I will pick his experience and power inside against Jones.
