For fans of mixed martial arts, this past week has been a slow crawl of steadily rising anticipation for tonight's "Jones vs. Evans" event, going down at the Philips Arena in Atlanta, Georgia.
UFC 145 will feature a light heavyweight championship bout pitting titleholder Jon Jones putting his 205-pound gold on the line against his former friend and training partner, "Suga" Rashad Evans.
In the co-main event, rising welterweight contender Rory MacDonald will go head on against British bomber Che Mills.
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.
