Now that UFC 158 is officially yesterday’s news, it’s time for the Octagon to focus on its next pay-per-view broadcast. “UFC 159: Jones vs. Sonnen” takes place April 27 inside Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey.

The show features a light heavyweight title tilt between champion Jon Jones (pictured) and Chael Sonnen. The 205-pounders are currently serving as opposing coaches on “The Ultimate Fighter 17.”

Although they aren’t featured in the hype video below, a middleweight shootout between Michael Bisping and Alan Belcher serves as the co-main attraction. No word on whether Bisping has accepted Belcher’s bet.
