UFC 128: Shogun vs. Jones Trailer and Official Fight Card

Although we're still recovering from the fumbles of Aussie judges at UFC 127, it's never too early to look ahead...

Meteoric rising star Jon Jones will challenge experienced veteran Mauricio "Shogun" Rua for the UFC Light Heavyweight Title. Jones takes on the challenge with relatively short notice, filling the spot for Rashad Evans who must sit out due to a training injury. Jones is being thrown into the fire. Can he take the heat? We'll find out on March 19 as the UFC returns to the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey for UFC 128.
