The Travel Channel's Anthony Bourdain is a UFC fan since 1977 or something. The chef, known for the tongue-in-cheek macho adventurism of his travel channel show has added another exotic destination to his travel itinerary.
UFC 140 features a light heavyweight title fight between Jon Jones and former champ Lyoto Machida. Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira faces Frank Mir in a meeting of ex-heavyweight champions. Noguiera's twin brother Antonio Rogerio Nogueira meets the legendary Tito Ortiz in the featured bout of the night. Chan Sung Jung, aka "The Korean Zombie", meets featherweight Mark Hominick and Brian Ebersole and Claude Patrick round out the main card.
Bourdain's known for his rock n' roll style and best-selling exposes of the high end New York City restaurant scene, has been at previous UFC's but this is his first in Toronto.
