UFC Live Jones vs. Matyushenko August 1st, at the San Diego Sports Arena in the next big event in MMA. The fight card holds 4 televised fights and 6 other fights. This is your chance to see Jon “Bones” Jones and is lightning quick dynamic fighting style.
The event was initially scheduled to be in Salt Lake City, but disappointing ticket sales forced the event to be moved. “Our television ratings in Salt Lake City have always been strong, and when we finally found the opportunity to bring a UFC event there with a great card, I was very surprised and disappointed in ticket sales. As a result, for the first time in UFC history, I decided to pull the plug and move this August 1st event to the San Diego Sports Arena,” said UFC President Dana White.
