Brandon Vera vs. Jon Jones Will Headline First UFC Show Versus

As noted yesterday, the UFC and Versus have announced that Jon Jones vs. Brandon Vera will be the main event on their first show on Versus. The show will air on Versus on March 21, 2010 in Denver, Colorado.

The bout comes after disappointing losses for both fighters. Jones suffered a controversial loss to Matt Hamill at The Ultimate Fighter 10 Finale earlier this month when he dropped illegal elbows in the first round, garnering a disqualification loss.

Vera also recently lost a high profile fight at the hands of Randy Couture at UFC 105. Many felt that Vera won the bout, but “The Natural” walked away with a unanimous decision victory.

The UFC will have a busy in March as UFC Fight Night on Versus is scheduled to air on March 21, 2010. Less than a week later, UFC 111 will take place on March 27th in Newark, NJ. Days later, the UFC is slated to air a Fight Night show on Spike TV on March 31st.
