Jones vs. Sonnen official for UFC 159 in NJ


We’ve known for several months now that UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones would next put his belt on the line against Chael Sonnen following the upcoming season of The Ultimate Fighter.

UFC officials on Wednesday, however, confirmed that Jones vs. Sonnen would headline UFC 159 on April 27. The event also marks the promotion’s return to the Prudential Center in Newark, N.J.

The two will first head up Season 17 of The Ultimate Fighter.

Jones and Sonnen will coach opposite each other when TUF on FX kicks off in its new Tuesday night timeslot on Jan. 22 with a two-hour premiere.

How is that code different than the newsletter code?Edit: It appears it's no different. Same seats show up when I try either code. Still no 2 seats side by side. I'm trying to get 2 seats that are just one row apart but same seat number, no luck with that either.

I tried at 9:58, 9:59, 10:00am, message was the same, "no tickets available". I could select one single seat at that price but not 2 side by side. But thank you for your suggestion :P

You should've tried at 10 exactly. That's when the presale started.
