However, the waiting will come to an end on Saturday when the promotion returns to the Air Canada Center for UFC 152. The fight card will feature two title bouts as well as what may be—if you listen to one of the participants—a middleweight title elimination bout.
In the evening's main event, UFC light heavyweight kingpin Jon Jones will put his title on the line against Vitor Belfort. Before that fight can take place, we will see who will be crowned the UFC's first flyweight champion when Joseph Benavidez and Demetrious Johnson square off to decide who will walk away as, Benavidez has termed it, the "George Washington" of the 125-pound division.
Leading into that fight will be a middleweight matchup between Michael Bisping and Brian Stann.
Bisping has made it clear that, with a win, he feels he should be next in line to face middleweight champion Anderson Silva. Stann, on the other hand told MMAFighting that he was going to take a "don't tell me, show me" stance on a fight with Silva, allowing the UFC to make the call if he would deserve a shot at Silva with a win over Bisping.
