UFC 140 Results: Jon Jones vs. Lyoto Machida Analysis, Reaction and Recap
UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones - Al Bello/Zuffa, LLC

The UFC is slated to return to Toronto for the second time in 2011 for UFC 140 from the Air Canada Centre on Dec. 10. 

In April, the promotion sold out the 55,000-seat Rogers Centre to set a North American attendance record for the sport of mixed martial arts.

Headlining the card will be a light heavyweight championship bout between current divisional kingpin Jon Jones and former champion Lyoto Machida.  Jones earned the belt in March by defeating Mauricio “Shogun” Rua, the very man who took the gold from Machida. 

In the night’s co-main event, a rematch from UFC 92 is on deck as heavyweights Frank Mir and Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira lock horns for a second time. 

Mir defeated “Big Nog” by second-round TKO in the first meeting, but the Brazilian is out to prove that a rumored staph infection was to blame for the lethargic performance.

Also on the main card, Nogueira’s twin brother, Antonio Rogerio, will battle former light heavyweight champion Tito Ortiz.  The two veterans look to remain relevant in the crowded 205-pound division.
