UFC 140 Jones vs. Machida: Who's on the Hot Seat?

After a three-week hiatus, the UFC and The Hot Seat are back.

Setting its sights on Toronto for the second time this year, the UFC presents UFC 140: Jones vs. Machida.

UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones looks to continue his domination of the UFC's light heavyweight division against former 205-pound champion Lyoto Machida.

Also featured on the main card will be the Nogueira brothers.

Rodrigo looks to prove his loss to Frank Mir at UFC 92 was in fact due to a severe staph infection and knee injury, while Rogerio faces another former light heavyweight champion in Tito Ortiz. These two were scheduled to meet in March of this year in Seattle, but Ortiz was injured and forced to pull out of the contest.

Brian Ebersole looks to continue his impressive run in the welterweight division as he faces Canadian Claude Patrick, who is a late replacement for one of the top prospects in all of MMA, Rory MacDonald.

Rounding out the main card is hometown favorite Mark Hominick, who will compete in his first fight since losing longtime trainer Shawn Tompkins, as he faces "The Korean Zombie" Chan Sung Jung.

Now that the UFC's deal with Spike is done, the preliminary fights will be on Ion television. Fans will now be treated to four bouts as opposed to the normal two on Spike. The rest of the bouts will stream live on the UFC's Facebook page.

Let's not waste any more time and take a look at who might find themselves unemployed this time next week should they lose on Saturday night.
