UFC 135 features a light heavyweight title fight between Jon Jones and Rampage Jackson. Jones, the youngest champion in UFC history, will look to defend his belt against a former light heavyweight champ in Jackson. The winner will most likely be taking on Rashad Evans with either fight being intriguing.
In the co-main event, Matt Hughes will be taking on Diego Sanchez in a fight between two big name, and still relevant fighters, who will look to add one more win to their record. Whether or not either can make a title run in the welterweight division remains to be seen.
