Jon Jones vs. Vladimir Matyushenko official for “UFC on Versus 2″ first reported the possibility of a light heavyweight match-up between the fast rising Jon Jones and grizzled vet Vladimir Matyushenko last week, and now the bout has been made official through one of the fighters involved in the upcoming scuffle.

Matyushenko recently reported that the bout was “official” in a recent posting on The Underground forum.

The duo will go at it during “UFC on Versus 2” on August 1 from the EnergySolutions Arena in Salt Lake City, Utah.

“Bones” Jones is coming off of the most impressive performance of his career with a devastating first round TKO of Brandon Vera during the inaugural “UFC on Versus” event, while “The Janitor” is currently on a three-fight win streak in the UFC with cosecutive victories over the likes of Jason Lambert, Igor Pokrajac and Eliot Marshall.
