Jones y Jackson agree to september title fight

"Bones" vs. "Rampage" hits Denver in september..

Denver will be the place for an electrifying title fight confirmed as the main
event of UFC 135, 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.
