Jon Jones-Ciryl Gane Prop Bets: Bettors Like Jones
According to BetMGM data analyst John Ewing, the top three Jones-Gane prop bets are on Jones KO/TKO or DQ (+350), Jones to win by submission (+350) and Jones to win in 60 seconds or less (+4000). The Jones-Gane betting trends show bettors are confident in a finish despite the way Jones had been fighting in recent bouts.
Jones has not fought since beating Dominic Reyes via unanimous decision in February of 2020. That bout marked the third straight fight that Jones took a fight to a judge’s decision. He caught flak after that fight for his passive fighting style not giving fans what they would prefer in The Octagon. This time around, Jones is looking to be a bit more proactive, and invited motivation coach David Goggins into his camp to give messages throughout fight week.
“I’m really excited, David Goggins is going to be hanging out with me all fight week,” Jones said on Episode 3 of UFC 285 “Embedded” per MMA Mania. “He’s like, ‘Jon, you gotta put on your mental kevlar, gotta make sure you’re ready to go. You gotta be willing to die for this sh*t.’ I’m like, ‘Yeah! Tell me more, tell me more!’”
Gane (11-1) has never lost by a finish. His lone loss came against former heavyweight champion Francis Ngannou, but Gane was able to win the belt by beating Tai Tuivasa with a knockout victory in September of last year.
Still, Jones certainly has the ability to finish Gane in more ways than one and based on the latest Jon Jones-Ciryl Gane prop bets trends, many bettors will be hoping he goes after the current heavyweight champ from the opening bell.
