UFC 159 Jones VS Sonnen


John Jones and Chael Sonnen, coaches on SpikeTV's Ultimate Fighter, will be headlining a card stacked of heavy hitters. Jones will defend his belt against Sonnen, who will be taking his first fight at LHW since 2006. Bad blood has finally risen after Sonnen's "poem" about Jones. Jone's responded by saying " I am going to clown you in the octagon. " 

Roy Nelson and Cheik Congo will stand face to face in the octagon. Nelson is riding a two-fight win streak. Back-to-back knockouts over Dave Herman and Matt Mitrione have given life to Nelson in the division. Kongo is 4-1-1 in his last six bouts, and is coming off a decision win over Shawn Jordan. A victory over Nelson would thrust Kongo back in to the thick of the heavyweight division.
