“UFC 140: Jones Vs. Machida” Tickets Go On Sale This Week

The UFC has put tickets for the recently-organized UFC 140 fight card on sale starting this week.

The tickets will go on sale to the general public on October 15 at 10 a.m. ET, while a UFC Fight Club pre-sale will begin at 10 a.m. ET the Thursday prior (October 14).

The card will be headlined by UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones, who will attempt to make his second successful title defense against former champion Lyoto Machida. Jones was expected to face arch-rival and former training partner Rashad Evans at the event, but Evans was determined not to be ready in time thanks to a thumb injury he suffered in his August bout against Tito Ortiz.

In the night’s co-main event, heavyweight former champions Frank Mir and Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira will tangle in a rematch of their 2008, UFC 98 meeting.

UFC 140: Jones vs. Machida will take place this December 10 at the Air Canada Center in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The full card, as currently rumored, is below.
