Ultimate Fighting Championship
You may not realize it, but Saturday night presents an opportunity for Dallas to claim another championship. The title? The Ultimate Fighting Championship’s welterweight title.

I am ridiculously pumped up for UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones(15-1MMA, 9-1UFC) vs. Rashad Evans(17-1-1MMA, 12-1-1UFC) tomorrow night on PPV.

UFC Champion Jon ‘Bones’ Jones talks with New School to give a preview of the big UFC 145 fight night this Saturday.
On paper, UFC 136 had everything it needed to be the best pay per view of the year. It did not disappoint. The event drew an announced attendance of 16,164 in which the main event featured the third installment of lightweight champion Frankie ’The Answer’ Edgar and his challenger ’The Bully’ Gray Maynard.
UFC 135 is in the books and Jon ‘Bones’ Jones is still the UFC light heavyweight champion. I’ll admit that I didn’t think it would be as easy as it was for the champ, despite his challenger being able to push Jones further than anyone else has.
This Saturday, current UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Jon ‘Bones’ Jones defends his title for the first time against former champ Quinton ‘Rampage’ Jackson. The outcome, if you listen to most, seems to be a foregone conclusion. The champ will steamroll his challenger in route to his first successful title defense. ‘Rampage,’ however, would be quick to argue.
