Jones has defended his light heavyweight title four times, with his most recent win over Vitor Belfort a UFC 152 earlier in Toronto.

Sonnen, after talking himself into another title fight last appeared at UFC 148, losing to middleweight champion Anderson Silva via TKO.  Sonnen missed a spinning back fist which allowed “The Spider” to capitalize on his mistake.
