Greatness within reach.

On Saturday night, that hotly debated slogan penned for UFC 165 will see one of two conclusions: Either Jon Jones will decimate a similarly tall and similarly long opponent en route to his record sixth title defense, or Alexander Gustafsson will positively shock the world by toppling the nigh unstoppable light heavyweight kingpin.

Regardless of the outcome, you're going to want to tune in.

Factor in the epic bantamweight championship showdown between interim champ Renan Barao and Eddie Wineland and you have a fight card that's almost guaranteed to deliver thrills.
