Word of warning to the greater Denver area -- the "Boogeyman" is coming.

That's because Anthony Ferguson has been booked to throw leather in a lightweight tilt against Aaron Riley at the upcoming UFC 135: "Jones vs. Rampage" event on Sept. 24 in Colorado, according to the promotion's Twitter

Ferguson (11-2) makes his way to the "Mile High City" carrying his Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 13 trophy after beating it out of Ramsey Nijem at the Finale on June 4.

Following him into town is grizzled veteran Aaron Riley, who, despite being 30-years-old, has been in the fight game since 1997 when "El Cucuy" was just an adolescent. He's run hot and cold in his time inside the Octagon but he's a represents a considerable test for a hot young prospect.

Show us what you're made of, Anthony.

UFC 135 will feature the very first title defense of Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones, who will take on the venerable Quinton Jackson in the evening's main event.

Joining them on the card will be a couple welterweight wrestlers with something to prove, as "The Dream" Diego Sanchez makes his return to the cage to battle fading legend Matt Hughes.

In addition, Nate Diaz makes his return to the 155-pound division when he gets busy against "The Fireball Kid" Takanori Gomi.

Sounds like a lot of fun to be had in Denver, folks.
