UFC Light Heavyweight Jon Jones

As the UFC continues their undying mission to conquer the world, although they will settle for sanctioning in New York in the meantime, two of the Octagon’s biggest superstars will make late night appearances in the upcoming days.

Tonight, freshly minted light heavyweight champ Jon Jones will be a guest on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” at 11:35PM ET/PT. MMA’s flavor of the month will discuss his UFC 128 victory over Mauricio “Shogun” Rua, and likely his criminal catching ways.

The late night lovin’ doesn’t stop there for the world’s premier mixed martial arts show. Former UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar will appear on “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” on Monday, March 28th at 12:35 am ET/PT to discuss his career, as well as his stint as a coach on the upcoming season of “The Ultimate Fighter.”

TUF 13 debuts on Spike TV next Wednesday, March 30th.

While world domination and Madison Square Garden remain atop the UFC’s wish list, landing a major network television deal is likely sitting at #3 in the pecking order.

Both fighters will be appearing in NBC shows…
