UFC 140 Jones vs. Machida: Weigh-in Results and Live Reaction

Adam OsterkampContributor IIIDecember 9, 2011

This Saturday's fight between light heavyweight champion Jon Jones and former champ Lyoto Machida is one of the most intriguing matchups between any two fighters in UFC history. While most fans have Jones as the favorite, it is nearly impossible to predict the outcome of this fight.

Jones is still undefeated (with the exception of Matt Hamill, of course) and Machida has only two losses in his career, one of which could have gone either way. Will the Machida era rise from its ashes on Saturday? Or will Jones take out "The Dragon" and prove himself to be Dragonborn?

UFC 140 has a lot more going for it than just Jones vs. Machida. Frank Mir and "Big Nog" are set to face off against one another for the second time. After his performance against Brendon Schaub, many people are giving Nogueira the win in this fight, but we all know you can never count Mir out.

With so many fights that could end up being fight of the night, UFC 140 is set to be another great card in a year full of them. The weigh-ins start at 4 p.m. ET/1 p.m. PT.
