This Title fight has been over a year in the making, starting with Rashad Evans being forced from his UFC 128 title shot against Shogun Rua only to be replaced by his then teammate and friend Jon Jones. Jones went on to defeat Shogun, capture the title, and start a yearlong saga with Evans making multiple appearances during Jones’s post fight interviews. The uncertainty of whether or not the teammates would fight each other quickly faded away as Evans made the decision to relocate from Greg Jackson’s camp to his own new camp and the animosity has only increased from there.

Despite facing elite competition throughout his UFC career, Rashad Evans is the most well rounded fighter that Jon Jones has encountered in his career and as a result the greatest threat to his title rein. With all of the hype, familiarity, and anticipation this battle has the makings of an instant classic you will not want to miss.

UFC 145 Video Preview and Predictions

The co-main event features a matchup of rising Canadian Welterweight Rory MacDonald and British knockout artist Che Mills. MacDonald was recently crowned the heir apparent to the Welterweight thrown by current champ and training partner Georges St-Pierre, but he will need to be careful to avoid sliding back down the ladder against the ever dangerous Mills. Che Mill’s failure to earn a spot on the Ultimate Fighter was only a minor setback as he has torn through the competition forcing the UFC to give him an opportunity and he didn’t disappoint knocking out Chris Cope in his debut. MacDonald nearly defeated current interim-champion Carlos Condit which must be in the back of his mind, but Che Mills is not the type of opponent to overlook. Fans can look forward to both men leaving it all in the cage while in pursuit of their ultimate goal.

The rest of the six fight main card is rounded out by a Bantamweight matchup between former WEC Champ Miguel Torres and Michael McDonald, a battle of Heavyweights with Ben Rothwell meeting Brendan Schaub, Featherweights Mark Hominick and Eddie Yagin squaring off, and an all Canadian Lightweight contest between John Alessio and Mark Bocek.

If the main card wasn’t enough, don’t miss out on an impressive series of undercard matchups. Travis Browne welcomes former Strikeforce Heavyweight Chad Griggs to the Octagon, Matt Brown returns to action against dangerous striker Stephen Thompson, John Makdessi meets Anthony Njokuani in a FOTN candidate, former Ultimate Fighter winners Efrain Escudero and Mac Danzig collide, along with the debuts of heavy handed Chris Clements and the ultra talented Maximo Blanco.

UFC 145 is loaded from top to bottom with talented fighters and interesting matchups. Make sure you catch all of the action this weekend and get your betting predictions information here at MMAbettingodds.com and Kamikazeoverdrive.net. Enjoy the fights!
