Despite moving UFC 232 to the Los Angeles area less than one week before the event, there has been virtually no effect on the betting odds for the two championship bouts on the card at sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark.
Jon “Bones” Jones (22-1, 1 NC) had a drug test come back positive for a trace of turinabol in his system, forcing the promotion to relocate Saturday’s Jones vs. Gustafsson card to The Forum in Inglewood, California.
Jones is coming off a 15-month suspension for a failed drug test involving the same substance by the United States Anti-Doping Agency, and the Nevada State Athletic Commission could not clear him in time for the card to go on as scheduled at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
Regardless, he is still set to fight for the vacant light heavyweight title against former top contender Alexander Gustafsson (18-4) in a rematch from 2013 in the main event. Jones won the first meeting by a five-round unanimous decision at UFC 165, defending his title for the sixth time, and he is back as a -285 favorite (bet $285 to win $100) on the UFC oddshere.
