UFC 109 – Brandon Vera reveals he will face Jon Jones on February 6th


UFC light heavyweight, Brandon “The Truth” Vera has revealed that Jon “Bones” Jones will be the man that steps in for the injured Antonio Rogerio Nogueira against him at UFC 109 on February 6th in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Posting via his Twitter page, Vera wrote:

“Just found out I’m firing Jon Bones Jones on March 21st in Denver Colorado. hope u heard it here first!!!!”

It appears Vera may have jumped the gun though as the post was soon removed. This could mean the news is not 100% true or that the promotion have pulled rank on being the first to announce it (most likely).

Vera was last seen in action at UFC 105 just last month, losing a razor close decision to former five time UFC champion, Randy Couture in Manchester, England. Prior to that he had been on a two fight winning streak and comes into this one 3-3 in his last six outings.

As for Jones, he is currently disputing his disqualification loss to Matt Hamill from earlier this month. It is argued that the illegal elbows thrown didn’t cause the injuries that forced Hamill to retire from the fight and therefore it should be ruled a no-contest.

  • Would be a very interesting fight, and that should have been a n/c for Bones not a DC.

  • Jon Jones is GoinG to walk through Vera, they have similar fighting styles But I have to say Jones has the crispier everything from GrecoRoman to striking to speed and that reach will Be the icing on the cake. Jon Bones Jones is GoinG to Be out there with a desire to Get the W since he was RoBBed his last fight. I like Vera But I don’t see this ending well for him

  • if you think vera has no chance you are an idiot

  • yea jones has great wrestling no doubt but vera did very well against randy and he is one of the best wrestlers in the game and he def won that fight. dont count vera out at all this could be one of the best fights in 2010

  • Bones might win if he fights like he did last time
