Jon Jones hasn't been keen on a rematch with Lyoto Machida, but that's the fight he's going to get.

With Dan Henderson (29-8 MMA, 6-2 UFC) suddenly out with a MCL injury, leading to the cancelation of next week's UFC 151 in Las Vegas, Jones (16-1 MMA, 10-1 UFC) now will fight Lyoto Machida (18-3 MMA, 10-3 UFC) for the UFC light heavyweight title as the main event at next month's show in Toronto.

UFC President Dana White on Thursday confirmed the news on a media conference call. The previous headliner for UFC 152 in Toronto, a flyweight title fight between Joseph Benavidez and Demetrious Johnson, will serve as the co-main event.

i like this fight for ONLY one reason. at least machida has a chance to prepare for jones. i would have liked to see jones vs hendo or sonnen, but sonnen would have taken it on such short notice. now with the machida fight being a whole month away we have more of a chance to see jones get KO'd. i will still pick jones by UD though.

I really hope Lyoto can figure out a way to put JJ to sleep, I can even begin to explain how much I am disliking this guy.

You and every living thing on this planet my friend....

I would be surprised if Jones' closest friends and family members could support him at this point.

If there are any positives to take away from this, it's that Toronto is getting a ridiculous card.

MAIN CARD (Pay-per-view)
Champ Jon Jones vs. Lyoto Machida - for light-heavyweight title
Joseph Benavidez vs. Demetrious Johnson - for inaugural flyweight title
Michael Bisping vs. Brian Stann
Evan Dunham vs. T.J. Grant
Matt Hamill vs. Vladimir Matyushenko
Charles Oliveira vs. Cub Swanson

PRELIMINARY CARD (FX)
Vinny Magalhaes vs. Igor Pokrajac
Dan Miller vs. Sean Pierson
Marcus Brimage vs. Jim Hettes
Seth Baczynski vs. Simeon Thoresen
Mitch Gagnon vs. Walel Watson

DAMNNNNNNNN

Never was a huge fan of the Dragon, but I will be cheering for him in this one. I hope he knocks Jones' teeth out with the front kick just like Segal taught him.
