The last time Jon "Bones" Jones stepped into the UFC octagon he demolished a tough opponent in Brandon Vera, securing his spot amongst the UFC elite 205'ers. Can he continue his rampage through the light heavyweight division and get a title shot? We will soon get that answer as Jon "Bones" Jones faces off against another tough fighter, Vladimir Matyushenko, in San Diego this Sunday.
Vladimir Matyushenko is no slouch. He tore through the IFL going undefeated there. His last loss was against Antonio Rogerio Nogueira in January of 2009 and he is now riding a three fight winning streak coming into this fight with Jones. Matyushenko is a gritty veteran that's been in MMA since 1997 and will be fighting for his career. He can not afford a loss at this point in his career, so Jones better be ready to avoid the takedown and unleash the arsenal of chingasos he possesses.
UFC Live 2 takes place on Sunday August 1, 2010 at the San Diego Sports Arena and will be shown live on Versus.
