This Saturday night, light heavyweight wunderkind Jon “Bones” Jones will attempt to make the second defense of his 205lbs. championship, against former champion Lyoto Machida. With a full head of steam and a trail of opponents behind him, the sky seems the limit for Jones, but he’ll be have to get past another seasoned and dangerous veteran in Machida to continue his rise.
Supporting the main event are two compelling match-ups, one a rematch between Frank Mir and Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira in the heavyweight division and the other a light heavyweight clash between Tito Ortiz and Antonio Rogerio Nogueira.
UFC 140: Jones vs. Machida goes down on Saturday, at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto, Ontario. FightLine will be back with live, ongoing coverage of the event beginning with the preliminary card.
