UFC 135 Results: Instant Analysis and Reaction for Jon Jones vs. Rampage Jackson

UFC 135 is set and ready to go in Denver, Colorado with a big and highly anticipated showdown between Jon Jones and Quinton "Rampage" Jackson.

The light heavyweight title showdown has been anticipated for months now since the matchup was announced. 

This will be Rampage's fourth title bout in the UFC, where he is 2-1 with one title defense. His only loss came against Forrest Griffin at UFC 86 in 2008 and is now making his return to the title rounds.

This will be Jones' first title defense in his young UFC career. Jones became the youngest champion in UFC history when he beat Mauricio "Shogun" Rua at UFC 128 in March.

Jones is 13-1 in his career with his only loss being a disqualification for illegal 12-6 elbows against Matt Hamill.

The card will also feature Nate Diaz, who will be in for a big scrap with the great Japanese lightweight, Takanori Gomi. This lightweight showdown possesses everything needed to earn "Fight of the Night" honors in the UFC's return to Denver.
