It seems like just yesterday UFC President Dana White was telling Jon “Bones” Jones that his victory over Ryan “Darth” Bader earned him a shot at a title, mostly because it was yesterday.

Despite a short training camp for his big light heavyweight title fight, Jones is ready to take on the champ, Mauricio “Shogun” Rua, at the Prudential Center in New Jersey. If you’re not bound for the Jersey shore, no worries, there are plenty of places in town to catch this fight and the UFC debut of former WEC standout Urijah Faber.
