The UFC's spring fight card in Atlanta has its main event, as UFC president Dana White confirmed today that light heavyweight champion Jon Jones will defend his title against former-teammate-turned-rival Rashad Evans, a former beltholder in that division. The heated matchup was expected after Evans handily decisioned then-undefeated Phil Davis at UFC on FOX and was made official today.

Torres vs. McDonald Plus Eight Bouts Confirmed for Atlanta updated Jan 20
Verbal agreements are in for a thrilling battle between bantamweights this spring. "What may be the hottest prospect in the 135-pound division takes on one of the all-time greats when Michael McDonald meets former WEC champion Miguel Torres at UFC 145 in Atlanta," said UFC president Dana White.

Also at that event, former Strikeforce fighter Maximo Blanco will make his featherweight debut against last season's Ultimate Fighter contestant Marcus Brimage. Both athletes possess a powerful striking style and have verbally agreed to the bout.

Mark Bocek vs. Matt Wiman - lightweight
Travis Browne vs. Chad Griggs - heavyweight
John Makdessi vs. Anthony Njokuani - lightweight
Mac Danzig vs. Efrain Escudero - lightweight
