The T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada is once again the scene of a mammoth pay-per-view card on Saturday July 6th, as 205lb King, Jon Jones (24-1-0), will take on dangerous Brazilian pretender Thiago Santos (21-6-0) in a mouth-watering main event contest inside the UFC octagon.

In his latest fight, Jon Jones secured a comfortable decision win over Anthony Smith, who failed to commit to his shots, which allowed Jones to coast to an easy victory. Thiago Santos actually finished Anthony Smith impressively when they met and he had won four of his five fights since, so is clearly a potent and rising force in UFC.

If Jones marches forward and plays the aggressive game, he will pepper Santos with long range kicks and look to unleash some big counter shots. As the minutes roll by, Jones may well seek to take Santos down and finish this one on the mat.

Jon Jones Vs Thiago Santos Odds & Betting Pick

Jon Jones is currently trading at -550 (1.18) favourite with bet365 Sportsbook, while Thiago Santos is the +400 underdog also with bet365.

In terms of looking for a good value UFC 239 betting prediction, it could pay to look in the alternative UFC betting markets. Thiago Santos will be no pushover on recent form and odds of +400 is a tempting price. All things considered though, Jon Jones is one of the greats for a reason and this fight is likely to play to his tune.

Jones is +375 at bet365 to win in round two which is a decent value betting pick, but the +550 with 888sport on Jones to win in Round 3 is the better price and perhaps just as likely an outcome.

Jones is not one to take risks, so he will not be reckless in his approach, but equally he could do with a statement victory and Santos would be a perfect opponent for Jones to exercise some of his somewhat forgotten grappling skills on.
