Above is the full video for Friday's UFC 140 press conference from the Air Canada Centre in Toronto, Canada. UFC President Dana White hosted the presser, and was joined by a panel of UFC light heavyweight champion Jon "Bones" Jones and title contender Lyoto "The Dragon" Machida. The proceedings were open to the general public, with a fan question and answer session being held after the media session.
White spoke the most of the three participants, explaining the methodology behind Machida's surprise title shot while heaping praise onto Jones for accepting his fourth fight of the year despite being badly hurt after UFC 135.
For their part, both main event fighters remained extremely respectful of each other, though each one still voiced definitive reasons why they should leave victorious. "I feel my biggest advantage is my youth, my versatility, and the way I approach the sport," said Jones. Without skipping a beat, the former champion countered, "I'm very confident I can overcome his athleticism with my technique."
