UFC on Versus 2 Announced for August 1 in Oakland

After making it’s Versus debut on Sunday with “UFC on Versus: Vera vs. Jones,” the UFC’s return to the network is already set, as UFC on Versus 2 will be held on August 1 in Oakland, California, UFC President Dana White announced at the event’s post-fight press conference.

Headlined by a showdown between top light heavyweight prospect Jon Jones and former contender Brandon Vera, Sunday’s event took place at the 1STBANK Center in Broomfield, Colorado and marked the first UFC event on cable that didn’t air on Spike TV, which had exclusively hosted the UFC since the debut of The Ultimate Fighter in 2005.

In December, the UFC reached a deal with Versus that would see two live events in 2010 air on the sports network, which has been home to sister promotion World Extreme Cagefighting since 2007.

No matchups were announced for UFC on Versus 2, which follows Brock Lesnar’s expected return at UFC 116 on July 3 in Las Vegas and precedes the UFC’s expected event in Boston on August 28.
