UFC 159 Weigh-In Results: Jon Jones and Chael Sonnen Set For Battle

UFC Light-Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones and former middleweight contender Chael Sonnen both made weight this afternoon in Newark, New Jersey, clearing the way to their title fight tomorrow at UFC 159.

Neither Jones or Sonnen engaged each other as the two squared off for pictures, however, Sonnen gave his usual fiery speech with UFC commentator Joe Rogan afterwards.

The real fireworks were reserved for Michael Bisping and Alan Belcher, as the two middleweights quickly got into a heated talking match, before Dana White stepped in.

The only fighter who didn’t make weight was welterweight Nick Catone, who came in at 173 pounds on his first attempt for his bout with James Head.
