Tonight the UFC 152 card will feature one of the most anticipated match-ups of the year between Jon Jones and Vitor Belfort for the Light Heavyweight Championship title in Toronto, Canada. The intriguing fight takes place between two Christian fighters who have shown great respect for one another prior to tonight. That match as well as a number of exciting undercard matches can be watched through PPV as well as online through live stream tonight (details below).
The Jon Jones vs Vitor Belfort bout represents a challenge for both the MMA Christian fighters. Jon Jones, who is the favorite to win the fight, has been widely criticized after he canceled his UFC 151 fight with Chael Sonnen, and he will be looking to erase the bad feeling from that incident tonight.
"The Phenom" though, was one of the few who defended Jones, and actually accepted this fight on short notice. He will be up against it tonight, fighting in the light heavyweight division for the first time since 2007.
The entire fight card is set to start at 7 p.m. ET and some preliminary matches will be shown on the UFC Facebook. The fans will be able to enjoy three fights including, Baczynski vs. Thoresen, Gagnon vs. Watson, and Noke vs. Brenneman, which should conclude right before 8 p.m. ET.
Other free preliminary fights - Pokrajac vs. Magalhaes, Pierson vs. Benoist, Hettes vs. Brimage, and Grant vs. Dunham - will be streamed by FX channel, getting MMA fans revved up for the main card which features Jon Jones vs. Vitor Belfort.
The main fight will go live on Pay-Per-View via cable, satellite, or internet live streaming feed at 10 p.m. EST.
