UFC poster Versus 2 Jon Jones Vlad Matyushenko

The longest MMA lull of 2010 finally comes to an end tonight when Jon Jones takes on Vladimir Matyushenko inside the San Diego Sports Arena in California. While most are content with just being able to watch the event live on Versus, I know a fabulous way to make the freebie fights a little more exciting.

As expected, “Bones” is a heavy favorite to bump his nearly-immaculate record to 11-1. Despite Matyushenko’s decorated resume, the Gambling Gods have pegged the journeyman a 4-to-1 underdog against the fast-rising superstar.

I’ve said it countless times before, but I’ll reiterate that the powers that be may have missed the boat on the pivotal middleweight scrap between Mark Munoz and Yushin Okami. Although the Japanese star is talented, -210 might be a tad much.

The Versus Network will broadcast the show live beginning at 9PM ET/6PM PT.
