If you felt teased by Jon Jones and Quinton Jackson’s back-and-forth at UFC Fight Night 25 this past weekend and would like to see more interaction between the two light heavyweights, tune in to Jimmy Kimmel Live this evening (Monday, September 19) at 12:00p.m. EST on ABC.
The UFC reminds through their website that the two will appear on the show tonight in what will be their first face-to-face meeting since the fight announcement press conference was held. Jones and Jackson will appear on the program in promotion of their light heavyweight title fight, which goes down this Saturday night in Denver.
Recently-minted UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones is fresh off of handing Mauricio “Shogun” Rua a thumping to inherit the title, while former champ Rampage has cultivated a two-fight winning streak by taking decisions over Lyoto Machida and Matt Hamill. The two men have made it clear that there is no love lost between them; they appeared on a simultaneous feed this weekend during the UFC Fight Night 25 broadcast to talk about their impending scrap with UFC commentator Joe Rogan and things quickly got heated — there is little reason to believe that their dual appearance on Kimmel tonight will go any differently.
UFC 135: Jones vs. Jackson is scheduled to take place on September 24 at the Pepsi Center in Denver, Colorado. Don’t forget to visit FightLine.com on the night for our live, ongoing coverage of the event.
