UFC 135 Gets Title, HWT Bouts
An electrifying title fight has been confirmed as the main event of UFC 135, taking place in Denver this September.

Light heavyweight champion Jon Jones and former light heavyweight boss Rampage Jackson have verbally agreed to the clash, said UFC president Dana White. Both men are coming off successes at UFC 128 and UFC 130, respectively, and after treating possible injuries, both have been medically cleared to compete.

MMA’s breakout star, Jones stunned the world in March with his third round TKO of Mauricio “Shogun” Rua to win the 205-pound belt. Jackson, who owned the title from 2007 to 2008, has put together back-to-back wins over Lyoto Machida and Matt Hamill to earn his long-awaited shot at regaining the crown.

Another big-boy rumble in the Rockies has also been added to the event, with Travis "Hapa" Browne fighting Rob "The Bear" Broughton. “Undefeated heavyweight Browne has verbally agreed to face Broughton, who is on a five-fight win streak," said White. Browne is coming off a KO of the Night victory over Stefan Struve at UFC 130, while Broughton last competed at UFC 120.
