UFC 159 will take place from the Prudential Center in Newark, NJ, with the main card bouts airing live on PPV at 10PM ET.

The main event of Saturday’s card is a battle for the UFC Light Heavyweight Championship with champion Jon Jones (17-1) defending his title against Chael Sonnen (27-12-1). According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Jones is the clear favorite to win this fight, as he has a money line of -950 to win, while Sonnen comes in with odds of +650 to win. Sonnen came in at 205 pounds for this title fight while Jones weighed in at 205 as well. The two didn’t make eye contact during the stare down afterwards. Jones elected to look down at Sonnen, perhaps as a symbol of what he thinks about him.

The co-main event of Saturday’s card is also a middleweight bout between Alan Belcher (18-7) and Michael Bisping (23-5). According to oddsmakers, Bisping is favored, as he has a money line of -170 to win, while Belcher has been given odds of +140 for this bout. On Friday, Belcher hit the scales at 185 pounds while Bisping game in at a weight of 186 pounds. The two had a very eventful stare down with a lot of trash talk and a little bit of shoving taking place. There seems to be a lot of bad blood between these two fighters.
