Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Light Heavyweight Champion and recent Gatorade acquisitionJon Jones, is putting his gold up for grabs against Alexander Gustafsson at the upcoming UFC 165: "Jones vs. Gustafsson" pay-per-view (PPV) event, scheduled for the Air Canada Centre in Toronto, Ontario, Canada on Sept. 21, 2013.

If you have plans on Saturday night, cancel them.

"Bones" joined "The Mauler" at Toronto's Shangri-La Hotel earlier today (Sept. 19) for a special "Ultimate Media Day," designed to get the mixed martial arts (MMA) community amped for their headlining affair. Part and parcel of said media obligation is the pre-fight staredown.

See above, comment below.

Jones (18-1) is looking to break the division record for consecutive title defenses, held by former 205-pound kingpin and UFC hall-of-famer Tito Ortiz. Gustafsson, on the other hand, is trying to become the first man since Steve Mazzagatti Matt Hamill to send the lanky-but-lethal light heavyweight into the loss column.
