Here we go again!
We're back with another contest thanks to our great friends at Round 5 -- the high end retailer responsible for mixed martial arts' most recognizable collectible figurines and merchandise -- to get us even more pumped up for the blockbuster UFC 140 event up in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, this weekend.
What's on the line this time?
None other than the entire "Ultimate Collector" Series 8, which is anchored by a Championship Edition Jon Jones that commemorates his historic victory over Mauricio Rua at UFC 128, and a Championship Edition Georges St. Pierre that honors the recently-injured Canadian’s victory over Matt Serra to regain his title at UFC 83.
That's not all.
Series 8 also includes a new version of former heavyweight titleholder Brock Lesnar, and Round 5 debut figures for reigning featherweight champion Jose Aldo, and heavyweight contender Roy Nelson.
What do you have to do to win? It's simple … follow us after the jump for complete details:
The main event at UFC 140 between Jon Jones vs. Lyoto Machida appears, on paper, to be a technical enigma.
"Bones" is long, able to pick apart his opponents from a distance, while Machida is ghostly, carefully floating in and out of exchanges with Ninja-like precision. So who is going to land the most strikes and do the most damage through five rounds of action (if it goes that far)?
Well, that's where you come in.
