Midnight Mania! Wanna Bet On NSAC Hearing With McGregor, Khabib, Jones?

Welcome to Midnight Mania!

You can bet on Tuesday’s Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) hearing, which features not only Khabib Nurmagomedov and Conor McGregor, but Jon Jones to boot. Khabib and Conor are there to reckon for their actions after UFC 229, in which Khabib leapt into the crowd after Dillon Danis. McGregor slugged climbed the fence after him, punched one of Khabib’s team, slugged another, then was hit from behind by a third Russian in a wild brawl on the most purchased UFC Pay-Per-View of all time. Jon Jones will be seeing if the commission will clear him to fight Anthony Smith in the main event of UFC 235.

The commission can fine each fighter the full amount of their fight purse. Interestingly enough, the odds for Khabib’s and McGregor’s suspension lengths are the same, and the over-under for 6 months is dead even. The Bovada odds are courtesy of Forbes.com:

Over 6 Months -120

Under 6 Months – 120

Jones is heavily favored to get his license, after the UFC opted to move an entire event from Nevada to California due to his tests coming back positive for trace amounts of turinabol metabolite. The UFC and USADA claimed these were residual effects of his previous turinabol use 18 months prior, for which he had already been suspended. This is evidently an argument everyone in charge is prepared to buy, at least according to the odds.

Yes – 1400

No – +750

Parlaying a Jon Jones license with any two of the other outcomes will net you $260 for every $100 you bet- provided you get it right.


No, thank you
