BetOnline has released odds on Roy Jones Jr vs. Anthony Pettis for Saturday night's UFC Fight Pass event.


Roy Jones Jr -225 Anthony Pettis +185

Jose Aldo -300 Jeremy Stephens +240

Vitor Belfort -265 Jacare +205

Pearl Gonzalez -325 Gina Mazany +250

Jones Jr  is 54-years-old. 

“There’s no real gain,” said Jones, who takes on the former WEC and UFC lightweight champion 36-year-old Pettis in a six-round main event on a card promoted by MMA star Jorge Masvidal’s Gamebred Boxing.

“My gain is to give everybody an opportunity to get together to put on an awesome card for people to see. Because that’s my whole goal in boxing is always to entertain people and give people what they want to see. And I know what Dean (Toole, Gamebred Boxing president) and Jorge are trying to do, and they’re trying to give people a new way of bringing fights together, fights that people want to see.”

Pettis returns to a home crowd in Milwaukee. In 2013, he won the UFC Lightweight Championship in the city, which rarely gets to host a combat sports event this big.

"It's amazing timing, honestly — 10 years later in a totally different place in life," Pettis said. "To see what the city's done and the Bucks have done — the growth of this place. When I was fighting last time, it wasn't like this so it's cool to see the growth of the city and it's an honor to be here to perform in front of my city and fighting one of the legends in boxing. It's a dream come true, like the fight gods blessed me with this one."
