This Saturday is UFC 140: Jones vs Machida in Toronto, Canada. As they do with every event, the UFC is holding a pre-fight press conference for fans and media this morning. The presser will be the final media appearance for the fighters before the weigh-ins tomorrow afternoon. The Press Conference is set to start at 1 PM ET.

It will be Jon Jones' second title defense, a feat that hasn't occurred since Chuck Liddell held the light heavyweight belt. Since Liddell only Quinton Jackson and Lyoto Machida have recorded a title defense. Many fans consider Machida to be the only many in the division to challenge Jones due to his unorthodox style. The last time Lyoto fought was in Toronto against Randy Couture.

In the co-headlining position, Frank Mir faces Antonio Rodrigo Noguiera for the second time in his career. Mir was the first man to stop Big Nog by TKO but after the fight it was discovered that Antonio entered the night with a slew of injuries. Since then there's always been the question of "Could Frank finish a healthy Noguiera?"
