UFC 140: Jones Vs Machida Live Odds

A bout between Lyoto Machida and Phil Davis was linked to this event. However, it was revealed that Davis is still recovering from a knee injury and the bout would not occur.

A bout between Jon Jones and Rashad Evans was also linked to this event. However, a lingering thumb injury will cost Evans a potential title bout with Jones for the second time, as Jones is now expected to face Lyoto Machida at the event.

The Ultimate Fighting Championship returns to Toronto this December with an epic light heavyweight title fight pitting champion and rising superstar Jon “Bones” Jones against dynamic striker and former titleholder Lyoto “The Dragon” Machida.

Jon jones vs lyoto machida:

The bout against Machida will be the second defense of the title for Jones. In his first defense he defeated Quinton "Rampage" Jackson via submission. Jones used a rear naked choke to force the Jackson, a former UFC light heavyweight champion himself, to tap out at the 1:14 mark of the fourth round.

Machida has spent most of 2011 out of action after defeating Randy Couture via second round knockout at UFC 129.

“Lyoto has been around for a long time, gone undefeated for years and is stylistically very tough to match up with,” UFC President Dana White said. “I think this is a fun fight.”

Jones would agree. He said he was looking forward to facing Machida because of the respect they shared for each other.

Frank Mir vs Minotauro Nogueira:

At UFC 140 next weekend, former UFC Heavyweight champion Frank Mir faces Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira in the semi-main event. The fight is a rematch from UFC 92, where Mir defeated Minotauro to claim the interim UFC crown.

At the time, Nogueira was an incredible 31-4-1 with his only loses since 2000 coming at the hands of Fedor Emelianenko and Josh Barnett. He was the heavy favorite to Mir, who was only a few fights removed from his terrible comeback run in 2006. But Frank Mir pulled off an incredible upset, not only defeating Nogueira, but stopping him with stand-up - a feat no man had yet accomplished.
