For UFC 140, the company has switched venues moving to the smaller Air Canada Centre, but once again the Canadian fans will be treated to another main event title fight.

Jon Jones will attempt to be the first man to successfully defend the 205lbs title on multiple occasions since Chuck Liddell did it four times between 2005 and 2006. Lyoto Machida rode a wave of dominance to the top of the division; winning the title from Rashad Evans, defending it against Shogun Rua in a controversial battle before dropping the belt via knockout to Shogun in Montreal.

This matchup will prove to be the biggest test of Jon Jones’s young career and despite the heavy betting odds favouring the champion there are a lot of questions surrounding this bout and who will emerge victorious.

UFC 140 Video Preview and Predictions

The co-main event will feature a rematch from UFC 92 as heavyweight Frank Mir and Minotauro Nogueira collide. Frank Mir became the first man to successfully knockout out the Pride FC legend in their first meeting. The former UFC champ has won 3 of his last 4 fights and could be one win away from earning another shot at UFC gold. Big Nog made a triumphant return in his home country of Brazil, knocking out Brendan Schaub at UFC Rio. After a prolonged absence from the cage, Nogueira quickly dispatched his opponent and silenced the critics that questioned his ability to compete with the upper echelon of the division.

Rounding out the main card former UFC Light Heavyweight champion Tito Ortiz will make another and potentially final appearance in the octagon as he battles Rogerio Nogueira. Ortiz has hinted at retirement, but that decision will most likely hinge on the outcome of his UFC 140 fight. Little Nog began his career with back to back wins but has since dropped two consecutive fights.
The always entertaining Brian Ebersole will battle Canadian Claude Patrick in a welterweight matchup, while fellow countrymen Mark Hominick will square off with Chan Sung Jung in a featherweight contest that has fight of the night potential.

The prelims will be highlighted by Krzysztof Soszynski taking on Igor Pokrajac, Jarred Hamman attempting to earn another fight of the night bonuses against Constantinos Philippou. Canadian strikers John Makdessi and Yves Jabouin will also make appearance. Canadian BJJ Black Belt Mark Bocek meets Nik Lentz in the lightweight division and Rich Attonito welcomes Jake Hecht to the UFC.
