Jon Jones returns to the Octagon this Saturday to take on Ciryl Gane, and Caesars has the best deal for New York on the UFC odds board. 

UFC 285: Jon Jones vs. Ciryl Gane 

Saturday, March 4, 2023 – 10:00 PM EST at T-Mobile Arena 

New Yorkers know a thing or two about a good fight. They even produced arguably the greatest fighter in the history of combat sports: Jon “Bones” Jones. The Rochester native makes his long-awaited return to the Octagon this Saturday to face Ciryl Gane at UFC 285, live from T-Mobile Arena in Paradise, Nevada. 

In theory, Jones shouldn’t have too much trouble putting away the former interim Heavyweight champion. But it has been over three years since Jones’s last battle, and he is moving up from Light Heavyweight, where he won the first of his two titles way back in 2011. 
Most fight fans in the Empire State will be betting on Jones, but what if he’s bitten off more than he can chew this time? Not a problem; Caesars Sportsbook has a tasty deal for new customers in New York, giving you up to $1,250 back as a free bet if Gane spoils your UFC picks. 

The Full Caesar 

There’s more free stuff where that came from. When you create your account at Caesars using this promotion, you’ll also receive 1,000 Reward Credits and 1,000 Tier Credits when you place your first wager, as long as you bet at least $10. 
If you have the bankroll, though, you’ll want to take advantage of this free bet offer and put the maximum $1,250 on Jones. The former two-time champion is the -170 favorite on the MMA odds board at Caesars as we go to press; if Jones wins, he’ll pay out $735.25 in profit, and if Gane (+145) wins, you’ll get to place another $1,250 wager for free. 
To secure your “Full Caesar” package, mash that Claim Deal button here at TheRX, then create your account at Caesars using the promo code ODDSTRADERFULL. Once you’ve logged into your new account, visit the promotions page, register for your welcome offer, and place your first bet on Jones. 

This isn’t the only big fight on Saturday’s card; Women’s Flyweight champion Valentina Shevchenko (-700) will defend her title against Alexa Grasso (+500) in the co-main event, and like Jones, Shevchenko is easily one of the greatest fighters this sport has ever seen. 

But there’s no question that Jones is the star of this show. Win or lose, history will be made this Saturday on the Las Vegas Strip, so if you haven’t already signed up at Caesars Sportsbook, now’s a perfect time. The main card starts at 10:00 PM ET; enjoy the show, and we’ll see you inside the Octagon.
