A light heavyweight matchup between Brandon Vera and Jon Jones, first reported in December, will headline the first “UFC on Versus” event, the UFC announced during Sunday’s WEC 46 broadcast on Versus.
“UFC on Versus: Vera vs. Jones” takes place on March 21 at the Odeum Colorado (formerly the Broomfield Event Center) in Broomfield, Colorado, a suburb of Denver, and airs live on Versus beginning at 10pm ET.
Tickets for the event go on sale to the general public this Saturday, January 16, with UFC Fight Club and Newsletter presales set to begin on Thursday and Friday respectively.
Though Vera-Jones was the only bout announced on Sunday, Anthony Johnson vs. John Howard and Sean Sherk vs. Clay Guida are also expected for the card.
