UFC 140 Predictions: Jones Will Defend Title, Ortiz Will Finish Nogueira

Jon "Bones" Jones will make the second defense of his UFC Light Heavyweight Title this Saturday night at UFC 140 in Toronto, Canada. Jones faces former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Lyoto Machida in the main event for the light heavyweight belt.

Jones is 3-0 in 2011 with victories over Ryan Bader, Mauricio "Shogun" Rua and Quinton "Rampage" Jackson. Machida defeated UFC legend Randy Couture in April at UFC 129 with a crushing knockout via a frontkick that knocked out one of Couture's teeth. 

Heavyweight Frank Mir faces Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira in the co-main event. Mir is on a two-fight win streak since his lost against Shane Carwin for the Intern UFC Light Heavyweight Title at UFC 111. 

Long time UFC veteren Tito Ortiz clashes with Antonio Rogerio Nogueira in a light heavyweight bout. "Little Nog" is on a two fight losing streak and hasn't won since May 2010.
