UFC 140: Jon Jones vs. Lyoto Machida Head-to-Toe Breakdown

UFC President Dana White announced via Twitter today that UFC Light-Heavyweight champion Jon Jones will be defending his title for the second time before year's end—but not against Rashad Evans.

Former UFC Light-Heavyweight champion Lyoto Machida will be facing Jones at UFC 140 on Dec. 10 in Toronto, Ontario.

Machida has been without an opponent since defeating Randy Couture at UFC 129 in April. Many thought that White was punishing the former champion for asking for "Anderson Silva money" when asked to step in for Phil Davis at UFC 133 against Evans.

Now that their apparent rift is mended, Machida is back in the top contender spot. But regaining the title will be a tall order—both figuratively and literally—against the seemingly unstoppable Jones.

Here's the head-to-toe breakdown for this sure to be exciting championship bout.
