Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) kicked off its traditional pre-fight press conference earlier today (Sept. 20, 2012) at the Real Sports Bar and Grill in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, to promote the upcoming UFC 152: "Jones vs. Belfort" pay-per-view (PPV) event scheduled for this Saturday night (Sept. 22) at the Air Canada Centre in "Hogtown."
You know the drill by now.
In attendance was UFC Director of Canadian Operations Tom Wright along with light heavyweight champion Jon Jones, former division titleholder Vitor Belfort, flyweight fighters Demetrious Johnson and Joseph Benavidez as well as middleweight contenders Brian Stann and Michael Bisping.
Prelude to a showdown.
