Jon Jones vs. Chael Sonnen: Odds and Predictions for UFC 159

Jon Jones is on the verge of making UFC light heavyweight history, but opposing The Ultimate Fighter coach Chael Sonnen will be aiming to shock the world when he meets the 205-pound champion at UFC 159.

With a win over Sonnen, Jones would earn his fifth consecutive title defense, which would tie him with Tito Ortiz for the UFC light heavyweight record. At 25 years old, Jones is already cementing himself among the MMA greats.

For Sonnen, this bout represents one last chance to back up his talk and earn UFC gold. After two losses to middleweight champion Anderson Silva, Sonnen was in a bad spot, but his mouth and marketability put him in position to get an unlikely shot at the light heavyweight belt.

With many considering him undeserving of another championship bout, Sonnen heads into this fight a massive underdog.

Let's take a look at where the odds currently stand (via 5Dimes) for Saturday's main event and the rest of the UFC 159 main card.
