Now that Jon Jones has solidified his spot atop the light heavyweight totem pole, the world’s biggest MMA promotion wasted no time in releasing the official trailer for their next major gig. “UFC 129: St-Pierre vs. Shields” takes place April 30th inside the Rogers Centre in Toronto, Canada.

Welterweight king Georges St-Pierre puts his title on the line against Jake Shields in the night’s featured contest. Jose Aldo will break in his new UFC featherweight belt against Mark Hominick in the card’s co-main event.

Props to the UFC for once again using real music to promote their pay-per-view broadcasts. While Jay-Z and Eminem have shared their tracks with the Octagon in previous promos, their latest video features Fort Minor’s “Remember the Name.”
