Oddsmakers Dub Dan Henderson a Massive Underdog Against Jon Jones

(Video: YouTube/BetDSI)

Last weekend Jon Jones followed up what was arguably the most dominant year in MMA history with an impressive victory over arch-nemesis Rashad Evans. Having toppled four consecutive UFC champions, “Bones” is so far ahead of the pack at 205lbs that he can barely reach them with his jab, and as he heads into his next bout against living-legend Dan Henderson it looks like everyone is putting their money on the champ. Well, you know, not *everyone*.

MMA oddsmaker Nick Kalikas has crunched the numbers for the Bones-Hendo affair and the odds are not kind to the former Pride and Strikeforce champion. Jones is opening up at -545 while the 41-year-old Henderson comes in as a big ‘dog at +385. So, he’s basically giving Dan as little of a chance as the rest of Bones’ challengers, only we still have plenty of time for the line to move.

Henderson may not have ended 2011 with UFC gold around his waist, but he wasn’t exactly sitting on his ass last year either. After H-Bombing the Strikeforce Light Heavyweight belt off of “Feijao” last March, Henderson pounded the final nail into Fedor Emelianenko’s Strikeforce-shaped coffin then headed home to the UFC where he and Shogun proceeded to beat the tar out of one another in the battle of the millennium.

Henderson’s pedigree speaks for itself, but it’s hard to picture anyone taking out Jones right now. Still, with these odds in mind, who are you emptying your wallet on?

I actually think that line is a little too generous to Hendo, and I'll get in on that Jones action at -545. Even with the TRT clearly reviving Hendo's career, I just don't see where he is a threat to Jones. Jones will see that H-bomb from a mile away. He'll also easily take Hendo down and crush his skull with elbows.

Hendo has the right idea. He needs to get in jones face and he has the chin to do it, an olympic clinch and his right hand is named mother fucker. I think its disgusting that so many people are sleeping on Henderson man...

If Hendo catches Jones with that overhand right Jones is going to sleep! If Hendo works on his cardio I have no doubt that he can beat Jones, Jones won't be able stand up to the power of the H-Bomb! Jones is an amazing fighter but doesn't have one punch KO power like Hendo does!

Jones is still a heavy favourite? Well colour me shocked. We all know Jones is going to be a big favourite until someone actually beats him, or at least makes a title run as dominant as his was.

Hendo's right can put anyone out (apart from Shogun it seems) but he's going to have a hell of a time getting close enough to use it. Have to go with Jones on this one.

Hendo is going to tap that young ass chin-mark my words-you read it here first-amen

I wonder what the gambling enabler has to say about this.

I think Hendo is the most under rated fighter in the game but he is a short middle weight and bones is an average HEAVY weight. Sorry hendo hut I think Johnny makes short work of you
