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.

I'm definitely going to this even though it makes no sense and is going to be super one sided.

Three months after it was announced and I'm still shaking my head at this match.

I'm def going. I hope Jim MIller is also on the card. He should be in the co-main.

Is this the worst matchmaking in UFC history? During the Zuffa era?

Chael is a cheating loudmouth whose time has come and gone. Great at selling fights but a true martial artist he is not, IMHO. I hope he gets some respect knocked INTO him. Will not be sad when he is gone and a great example of what is wrong with the sport we love. Phone Post

When they first announced the fight, I thought it was whack. But, now I think, meh, what's the big deal? If Chael gets smashed in a minute, then we can complain.

Ridiculous fight, but depending on if the rest of the card is good I may go.

Both Miller bros should be on the card! Definitely put Jim as comain after his last performance!

Haha- the "fan-boycotts" are all going to be for naught. Hendo was hurt, Machida turned tail, and they needed to boost TUF ratings. OH WELL- life goes on. It's not the worst thing and the buildup should be very entertaining. You're only ruining the enjoyment for yourselves. Phone Post

How Chael does in this fight is irrelevant IMO. There are many fighters who would give Jones a good fight that don't necessarily deserve it. The problem I have is that he clearly doesn't deserve a title shot and there are other fighters who clearly deserve it over him.

Chael disavows being a martial artist. He's a gangster by day, vale tudo cagefighter by night. Phone Post
