One of the biggest UFC cards of the year will be held on Saturday, March 4, as Jon Jones returns to the promotion with a massive heavyweight title bout against Ciryl Gane.
Wagers have been pouring in on the contest, and BetMGM released its updated betting percentages and odds on Friday morning.
In the main event, Jones opened as a +130 underdog but has shifted to being a -175 favorite. That’s likely in part due to the fact that 73% of the wagers and 89% of the money has come in on him.
Meanwhile, Gane has gone from being a -160 favorite to a +145 underdog.
In the co-main, the legendary Valentina Shevchenko meets Alexa Grasso, with the current champion a massive favorite, as she usually is. Shevchenko is -750 after opening as a -675 favorite, and that’s despite 73% of the wagers and 47% of the money coming in on Grasso.
Going further down the card, the biggest discrepancy in wagers versus handle for a bout comes via Geoff Neal vs Shavkat Rakhmonov. Neal has tracked 79% of the wagers at a +380 price, but 74% of the money is on Rakhmonov.
The biggest gap in the main card odds comes in the first fight, as Bo Nickal is an insane -2000 favorite against Jamie Pickett. As you might expect, 88% of the wagers and 71% of the money has been placed on the +950 underdog.
UFC 285 is set to get underway at 10 p.m. ET.
