Report: Jon Jones vs. Chael Sonnen being targeted for New Jersey on April 27, 2013 | UFC News

The Jon Jones vs. Chael Sonnen fight is reportedly being targeted to take place in New Jersey on April 27, 2013, according to the folks at MMA Weekly.

This would mark the fourth time “Bones” will have fought in the state (2nd time while part of the UFC), the last being his light heavyweight championship win over Mauricio “Shogun” Rua at UFC 128 in March of 2011.

This would be Sonnen’s third trip to the “Garden State”, his last being way back in July of 2007, where he defeated Amar Suloev via TKO while with the “Bodog Fights” promotion.

Stay tuned to for further updates.

    I’ve been a huge mma fan since 2000,and have yet to see a live event.that would be my dream.i promised myself that in 2013 I have to go.ive just been waiting for them to come back around the tri-state or at least Philly,somewhere that’s not that far from CT.jersey would be perfect….just hopefully they stick with this.

      Dude…ur missing out.a live UFC event is just absolute craziness.theres nothing else like it.and ur from Connecticut…..ouch….the UFC barely holds events on the east York,and ct its illegall still so yeah I can imagine.they go to Philly sometimes and jersey but that’s it,and that’s not a lot that they do from Colorado so I can take a little road trip to Vegas here and there.good luck on ur dream bro,it’s awesome.
