This fourth installment of UFC on Fox features two titillating bouts at 205 pounds, with the winner of each destined for a second meeting with UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones. 

In the main event of the evening, Mauricio "Shogun" Rua takes on Brandon "The Truth" Vera to see which fighter can turn in a vintage performance and get a shot at the gold.

Meanwhile, Ryan "Darth" Bader squares off against Lyoto "The Dragon" Machida in the co-main event to stake their claim at the coveted light heavyweight title.

In a lightweight showdown, Joe Lauzon squares off with former WEC 155-pound champion Jamie Varner in a bout that will likely separate contender from pretender.

Kicking off the main card, The Ultimate Fighter Season 9 runner-up DaMarques "Darkness" Johnson takes on a Season 1 alumnus in Mike "Quick" Swick, who returns after a nearly 30-month layoff.

Predicting the action this week are Bleacher Report MMA Featured Columnists Jeffrey McKinney, Dan Hiergesell, Dale De Souza and myself, John Heinis. 

Take a look inside to see who's getting their hand raised Saturday night.
