UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones will defend his belt against Rashad Evans at UFC 145 in Atlanta, Georgia on April 21, 2012. It's one of the most anticipated bouts of the year and probably the toughest test Jones has faced in his young career.
Evans and Jones are former training partners at Greg Jackson's famous MMA camp in New Mexico and the two ex-friends have approached the fight as a very personal matter. Evans left Jackson's camp permanently after being unhappy with the way the camp handled the fight booking process.
Despite Evans' formidability, Jones is a 6-1 favorite with the oddsmakers. In this video a number of UFC and MMA fighters including Forrest Griffin,Mike Pierce, Kyle Kingsbury, Urijah Faber, Dominick Cruz, Quinton "Rampage" Jackson, Muhammed Lawal and Jay Hieron speak their piece about the match-up and the odds.
