UFC Light Heavyweight Jon Jones

After Monday’s announcement that Rashad Evans would in fact headline UFC 145 opposite light heavyweight champ Jon Jones (Pictured), 11 fights have now been confirmed for the April 21st show.

Philips Arena in Atlanta, Georgia hosts the UFC’s return to the Peach State.

The card’s official bout order has yet to be confirmed. Furthermore, because it will be a pay-per-view broadcast, it’s possible the organization could add one final scrap to the lineup.

The event marks the second Octagon show to hit the ATL. UFC 88 in September of 2008 was the organization’s last card in the city.

Evans put Hall of Famer Chuck Liddell to sleep in the card’s featured contest. That promotion also took place at Philips Arena.

Here are the athletes slated to participate in Hotlanta:

Keith Wisniewski vs. Chris Clements

Maximo Blanco vs. Marcus Brimage

Mac Danzig vs. Efrain Escudero

Anthony Njokuani vs. John Makdessi

Matt Wiman vs. Mark Bocek

Ben Rothwell vs. Brendan Schaub

Miguel Torres vs. Michael McDonald

Mark Hominick vs. Eddie Yagin

Travis Browne vs. Chad Griggs

Rory MacDonald vs. Che Mills

Rashad Evans vs. Jon Jones (UFC Light Heavyweight Champion)
