It has been a bumpy ride outside of the Octagon in 2012 for UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones. Come fight night, however, the man known as “Bones” always delivers the goods. When he squares off with Vitor Belfort, Jones will look to erase at least some of the ill will generated by the UFC 151 cancellation by doing what he does best: providing high-quality violence.

Jones checked in at 204.6 pounds for his five-round title defense against Belfort (204.2) in the UFC 152 headliner on Saturday at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto. The eight other fighters slated for main card duty, including flyweight championship hopefuls Joseph Benavidez (124.4) and Demetrious Johnson (125), also met their contracted weight requirements at Friday’s official weigh-in at the Mattamy Athletic Centre.

I was actually a little concerned that Jones wouldn't make weight just to add to his list of recent issues, but I'm glad he did. Now it's time to start hoping for that miracle.

Oliveira barely missed weight. I hope he doesn't make a habit of this

jon jones isn't personable enough to sell more... which is what he should work to get more money vs not wanting another match with lyoto. guys like tito lived in the love/hate status to get buys but jones doesnt really know how to work media

The initial main event didn't sell very well because the casuals dont really know who the FLWs are and would rather see the big boys go at it. Montreal isnt that far away from Toronto and GSP is making his return in 2 months so I assume people would rather pay for that instead. And maybe this latest Jones saga made people say "fuck that I aint supporting him."

but who cares, I'll be there
