Ultimate Fighting Championship fans will want to tune into FUEL TV for tonight’s episode of UFC Tonight. Back in the host seat this week alongside Kenny Florian is UFC bantamweight champ Dominick Cruz. The two will break down Saturday’s UFC on FOX 7 card headlined by Benson Henderson vs. Gilbert Melendez in a battle for the lightweight title.
Also, UFC light heavyweight champ Jon Jones stops by to talk about his upcoming bout with Chael Sonnen and why he doesn’t think Mr. Sonnen has a “champion’s soul”. Jones will also discuss why his relationship with Rashad Evans is on the mend, why Melvin Guillard is not welcome back at Jackson’s and more.
Immediately following UFC Tonight, stick around for this week’s episode of UFC Ultimate Insider as rising welterweight Jordan Mein is profiled.

Also, host Jon Anik sits down with former Strikeforce lightweight champion Gilbert Melendez as he prepares to make his long awaited UFC debut this weekend in a title unification bout with Benson Henderson.
