UFC 156

February 2nd, 2013

Las Vegas, Nevada

Mandalay Bay Events Center


Dan Henderson earned a shot at the UFC light heavyweight title on the heels of a four-fight win streak, but eventually pulled out of his scheduled fight with Jon Jones due to a MCL tear. Most recently, Henderson defeated Mauricio ‘Shogun’ Rua via unanimous decision in what is considered the best fight of 2011.

Lyoto Machida turned down a rematch against Jon Jones at UFC 152, due to the short time to be able to prepare for such a tall task. He was given the chance to regain his title after dismantling Ryan Bader with a highlight reel second round knockout at UFC on FOX 4.
