Once again MMA proved that you never know and that anything can happen when you step into the cage. Take tonight’s UFC 140 in Toronto, Canada for example, six of the 12 fights ended in the opening round while another three didn’t make it out of the second round. The exciting night might be in the books but the results from tonight will be talked about for a long time across the internet.

The fighters for tomorrows UFC 140 all stepped on the scales today in Toronto, Canada in front of a packed house along with everyone watching over the internet. Out of the 24 fighters, only lightweight Dennis Hallman missed weight and coming off his speedo incident at UFC 133 the veteran’s on very thin ice.
Coming off an exciting TUF 14 finale the Ultimate Fighting Championship is back this weekend with UFC 140 from Toronto, Canada. The second to last UFC event of 2011 will be headlined by the light heavyweight champion Jon Jones making his second title defense against former champion, Lyoto Machida.
This Saturday, Dana White and crew will make their way to the Air Canada Center in Toronto, Ontario for UFC 140: Jones vs. Machida. When this event was first announced, Lyoto Machida and Phil Davis were rumored to be the main event but it was eventually revealed that Davis was still recovering from a knee injury and would not be fighting. Later, it was thought that Jon Jones would defend his title against Rashad Evans, but that, too, was shut down due to a thumb injury in the Evans camp. Let’s take a look at the current main card and break it down.
TUF 14 wasn’t bad for a wager or two, but if you’re looking for some serious Christmas money, this is the card. Between Jones defending his title and both Nogueira brothers on the same card, its money well spent on the PPV and money in pocket with smart wagers. So, let’s dig into my comparison betting odds and valid props for this event and get the bankroll growing. Now, onto the fights!
Sometimes five rounds aren’t enough. Mark Hominick walked into the Rogers Center a HUGE fan favorite over Jose Aldo and left every single bit of energy and fight he had in the Octagon, but when 25 minutes had come and gone, Jose Aldo was still the UFC Featherweight Champion.
With a Canadians in each one of the two title fights at UFC 129, the 55,000 fans in attendance had hoped to be celebrating tonight. Well fans had to settle with only one of their hometown favorites walked out of the Rogers Centre with gold around their waists.
Ok, this one is a little tougher for me. Jose Aldo is one of the best in the world, perhaps THE best in the game, but on any given night, a fighter can lose. What can you look for here? Mark Hominick is the best boxer in the division. He’s trained by standup maven Shawn Tompkins and that spells trouble for his opponents.
