UFC 152 fight card: Predictions, previews and a complete guide to 'Jones vs Belfort' in Toronto

For fans of mixed martial arts, this past week has been a slow crawl of steadily rising anticipation for tonight's "Jones vs. Belfort" event, going down at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

UFC 152 will feature Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones defending his title against the most unlikely of contenders, Vitor Belfort, in the main event that was never supposed to be.

That honor goes to the fight that now represents the co-main event, a historic 125-pound showdown pitting Joseph Benavidez vs. Demetrious Johnson for the first ever UFC flyweight championship. Also scheduled for the night is Michael Bisping vs. Brian Stann and the return of "The Hammer," Matt Hamill.

It's been a flurry of non-stop news, analysis, quotes, predictions and previews for the past week and it's certainly understandable if you missed out on a few stories.

But don't worry, Maniacs, we've got you covered.

In cased you missed any or all of it - or just want to keep the discussion alive - below are links to all the major storylines heading into tonight's broadcast.
