Corey Anderson Currently Listed as Favorite to Be Jon Jones’ Next Opponent

By Tristen Critchfield Feb 10, 2020

Jon Jones’ next opponent could come from this weekend’s UFC Rio Rancho card, according to BetOnline.

The online oddsmaker gives Corey Anderson 4-to-5 odds (or -125) to emerge as the next light heavyweight title challenger, while Jan Blachowicz is listed at 11-to-4, or +275. Anderson and Blachowicz are scheduled to square off in the UFC Fight Night 167 main event at the Santa Ana Star Center in Rio Rancho, N.M., on Saturday.

Jones is coming off a contentious unanimous decision victory against Dominick Reyes in the UFC 247 headliner this past Saturday. However, a majority of observers — including many in the media — thought Reyes deserved to win the fight. Reyes is given 7-to-2 odds (+350) of getting an immediate rematch, according to BetOnline.

Anderson, Blachowicz and Reyes have the best chances of facing Jones next, but BetOnline also provides odds on more farfetched options, such as middleweight champion Israel Adesanya and WWE star Brock Lesnar.

Jon Jones’ Next Opponent Odds:

Corey Anderson 4/5
Jan Blachowicz 11/4
Dominick Reyes 7/2
Stipe Miocic 8/1
Daniel Cormier 12/1
Francis Ngannou 14/1
Israel Adesanya 14/1
Brock Lesnar 22/1
