UFC Light-Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones and Chael Sonnen have cleared the final hurdle to their championship fight tomorrow at UFC 159, as both men weighed in today at 205 pounds in Newark, New Jersey.

After the former TUF coaches made weight, Jones and Sonnen squared off for the cameras without incident, as Jones chose not to look directly at his opponent.

Michael Bisping and Alan Belcher needed to be separated by UFC President Dana White, not surprisingly, as the two started having a heated debate before Belcher poked at the British middleweight.

Here are the official weigh-in results for UFC 159.
