We are a little less than two weeks from one of the biggest UFC events of the year, and anticipation is running wild. UFC 159, which takes place in New Jersey, will feature a light heavyweight championship bout, as champ Jon Jones defends the strap against multi-time middleweight contender Chael Sonnen.
This match comes on the heels of a coaching stint opposite of one another on The Ultimate Fighter. Sonnen got the best of Jones on three occasions, winning the coaches challenge, a game of bowling and the actual season (both fighters in the finale were from Team Sonnen).
Here is an early main-card breakdown for UFC 159 that features Jones vs. Sonnen, Michael Bisping vs. Alan Belcher, and a couple other intriguing bouts.
