On December 10th the UFC will put on it’s penultimate event of 2011 with their light-heavyweight title on the line in the main event in Toronto, Canada.
Of course it’s Jon Jones who currently holds the belt and he’ll be looking to defend it for a second time and go 4-0 this year when he takes on former champion Lyoto Machida.
Jones has looked unstoppable so far in the division, but many believe that Machida’s quick, evasive counter-striking style could offer him his toughest test yet.
Both Nogueira brothers are fighting on the UFC 140 card, starting with Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira who’ll be looking to continue on from a KO win over Brendan Schaub when he faces Frank Mir.
With the way the heavyweight division is shaping up at the moment either man could get back into title contention in 2012 with a win here.
Meanwhile Antonio Rogerio Nogueira will square up against Tito Ortiz in a must-win battle for these two veteran campaigners who have been experiencing more losses than wins lately.
Rounding off the main card is a fun looking featherweight scrap on the main card sees former No.1 contender Mark Hominick pitted against ‘The Korean Zombie’ Chan Sung Jung, while Canadian fighter Claude Patrick will enjoy home advantage against the Australian Brian Ebersole.
