Middleweight king Anderson Silva was a 3-to-1 odds-on favorite when he successfully defended his throne against Chael Sonnen at UFC 148. Reigning light heavyweight champ Jon Jones (Pictured) is pegged as a whopping 10-to-1 favorite to dismantle Uncle Chael when they collide April 27th. So if you were to do the gambling math, does that mean Jones would be a 7-to-1 favorite to beat “The Spider” if that fantasy fight ever came to fruition?
