UFC 140 is headlined by a title-fight match between current light heavyweight champion Jon Jones and former divisional king Lyoto Machida. Also in action at the show, Frank Mir and Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira will square off in the co-main event with Tito Ortiz vs. Antonio Rogerio Nogueira making up another of the evening’s highlights.
The ION prelim event will boast fights between Krzysztof Soszynski/Igor Pokrajac, Constantinos Philippou/Jared Hamman, Dennis Hallman/John Makdessi, and Yves Jabouin/Walel Watson. Action begins at 7:00 p.m. ET with the special running two hours instead of one hour as is normally the case.
This will be the third time ION has shown UFC fights as the network also televised the prelims for UFC 125 and UFC 127.
