The Octagon’s graphics department brought the heat with their work on UFC 158′s event poster. Unfortunately, their follow-up effort leaves a lot to be desired.  Nonetheless, the official billboard for “UFC 159: Jones vs. Sonnen” gets the job done. Reigning light heavyweight king Jon Jones defends his throne against Chael Sonnen on April 27th inside Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey. Tickets for the show go on sale early next week. “Bones” is currently a whopping 10-to-1 odds-on favorite to dispose of his chatty challenger. Sonnen, meanwhile, is pegged as a 6-to-1 longshot against arguably the most unstoppable force in mixed martial arts. After the champ disposes of Uncle Chael (according to the Gambling Gods), Daniel Cormeir is gonna”kick Jones’ ass.”
