The Zuffa brass have released a UFC 145 promo which features amazing material of Jon Jones submitting Lyoto “The Dragon” Machida via guillotine choke at UFC 140.
In one of the most anticipated events of 2012, “Bones” Jones is slated to defend his light heavyweight title for the third time against friend-turned-foe and former training partner, Rashad Evans (17-1-1 MMA, 12-1-1 UFC).
Evans, who recently secured the top spot to contest the championship by winning a unanimous decision against Phil “Mr. Wonderful” Davis at UFC on FOX 2, has been at loggerheads with Jones, ever since the latter made it known that if he ever became champ, he’d be willing to fight Evans on the say-so of UFC president Dana White.
At 23, Jones (15-1 MMA, 9-1 UFC) became the youngest 205-pounder in the history of the organization when he dethroned Pride legend Mauricio “Shogun” Rua in March of 2011.
The same year he followed that up with two successful title defenses against Quinton “Rampage” Jackson (rear-naked choke) and Machida.
UFC 145 is scheduled for April 21, 2012, at the Philips Arena in Atlanta, Ga.
