Despite this excellent performance, Blachowicz is still a large +400 underdog against Jon”Bones” Jones who’s coming back as a -600 favourite. This will be the most important event for the global Fight Week card at July although this battle has been announced.
It’s nothing new to watch Jones as a favored, with shut as a -500 or favorite in 10 of the 14 bouts. Though his last 2 fights, lately were considered controversial decisions in his favour so in his UFC 247 triumph over Dominick Reyes in early February.

In his 14 UFC bouts, in which he’s a 9-5 recordhe has been an underdog in eight of these and he would have made bettors a gain of $940.00 if you bet $100 bucks on every one of these underdog bouts.
Blachowicz, the challenger, is mostly a striker, who lets his rivals come to him as he looks??for an opportunity to land his heavy strikes. And hefty they are with seven of the 26 wins coming by knockout. What is a underrated portion of his game is his grappling as he really has a takedown percentage than Jones, hitting 52 percent of his efforts to Jones’ 44 percentage. Moreover, the Polish fighter has nine entry wins to his title. All that said, he can be seen standing a little flat-footed and can frequently be caught waiting too long due to his competitors.
In terms of the winner, Jones, he is exceptionally well-made, acquiring the capability to stand and hit for 25 minutes or take the battle to the ground since he averages 1.85 takedowns a 15 minutes. His conditioning is excellent, typically picking the pace up dramatically in the championship rounds plus that he always stalks forward to the fight that is complete, bullying together with his attacks. In his previous two boutshe actually demonstrated what a chin he has, ingesting some strong punches from Santos and Reyes and then that he walked directly through them.
Not certain if Blachowicz’s ability will have much of an effect against Jones and with the winner constantly stalking the challenger, conditioning and a important factor could play in the struggle. Not sure it is the bet to make although the odds are alluring on Blachowicz.
