"Vera vs. Jones" is set to feature a fantastic main event between dynamic light heavyweight strikers Brandon "The Truth" Vera and Jon "Bones" Jones in a 205-pound clash that could be Jones' coming out party -- if he manages to finish the former heavyweight.
A win may even have him in the running for the next light heavyweight title shot.
Also looking to bully their way into title contention is surging heavyweight prospect Junior "Cigano" dos Santos, as he looks to pass what could be his final test against fellow Brazilian Gabriel "Napao" Gonzaga.
