UFC on Versus is back for the second time this year, and we will see a familiar fighter in the main event. Jon “Bones” Jones who defeated Brandon Vera via a TKO in round one of the main event fight of he first UFC on Versus will be featured in the main event again, this time taking on an experienced Vladimir Matyushenko. Belarusian Vladimir “The Janitor” Matyushenko also fought in UFC on Versus 1 back in March, where he won a split decision against Eliot Mashall.
Jones, 23, comes into the fight less experienced with his 10-1-0 record, compared to the 24-4-0 record that 39 year old Matyushenko holds, but oddsmakers have made him the heavy favorite in Sunday’s bout.
UFC on Versus 2 will be live at 9 PM EST on Versus and is being held at the San Diego Sports Arena in San Diego, California.

UFC on Versus Predictions and Betting Picks:
Jones vs Matyushenko – Jones will be took quick and too athletic for the older and experienced Vladamir Matyuhsenko to handle. I think Jones is on his way to becoming a very big name in the UFC, and will win the main event fight on Sunday on his way. At -650 odds I don’t think I will be placing a bet on him to win straight up, but my bet is going on Jones to win in round 3 of the bout at +525 odds. Bet it now at Sportsbook.com.
Underdog Prediction – Gomi vs Griffin – I like Gomi at the +255 odds listed to upset Tyson Griffin in the first of the live bouts that will be aired on Versus.
Undercard Prediction – Kelly vs Volkman – On the undercard, which won’t be aired live on Verus, I like Jacob Volkman at -125 over Paul Kelly.
