Jon Jones is coming to Atlanta, Ga., on April 21, 2012, to headline UFC 145. Who will join him in the main event?
Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones will indeed headline the mixed martial arts (MMA) promotion's upcoming pay-per-view (PPV) event at the Philips Arena in Atlanta, Ga., on April 21, 2012.
The rumored appearance was confirmed during the UFC on Fox 2: "Evans vs. Davis" telecast, during which "Bones" was an expert guest on the panel alongside UFC Hall of Fame inductee, Randy Couture. And as FOX broadcaster pointed out, Jones has a vested interest in the main event this evening from the United Center in Chicago, Ill., between Rashad Evans vs. Phil Davis.
If "Suga" comes away with a victory, he will finally get the opportunity to settle the score with Jones once and for all, as well as reclaim his 205-pound championship. However, if "Mr. Wonderful" pulls off the upset, the picture gets a little more complicated.
That's because Dan Henderson might get the nod, considering that Davis is still a bit behind him in the divisional pecking order. Unless, of course, Davis has a money performance this evening that leaves UFC President Dana White no choice but to book him for Atlanta, too, opposite Jones.
We'll know soon enough.
