UFC On Versus 2 “Jones vs Matyushenko” Moved To San Diego from Salt Lake City

The UFC pulls a switch on the UFC on Versus 2 fight card in Salt Lake City on Aug. 1, moving the whole event to San Diego. In a UFC press release, UFC President Dana White cites poor ticket sales for the switch.

“Our television ratings in Salt Lake City have always been strong. When we finally found the opportunity to bring a UFC event there with a great card, I was very surprised and disappointed in ticket sales. As a result, for the first time in UFC history, I decided to pull the plug and move this August 1st event to the San Diego Sports Arena.”

Their has also been rumors the “Mormon Influences” were to blame for the change in venue.

Comments

  1. Mormons can't afford the tickets, they have to many wives to feed. Now you know how we feel, with 9 kids running around.

  2. i live in salt lake city this bums me out

  3. should have bought a ticket, then you'd be broke and bummed

  4. Does anyone know what the rest of the card looks like?

  5. Ryan S: the card looks decent for a freebie.

    Hey Ryan,

    I know what you are saying. I posted yesterday for the first time under MexiCAN but I only posted twice. Someone else has since typed all kind of stuff, making fun of just about everyone and those were not my posts. Some people have to much time on their hands. Anyway, I just changed my name to "The Real Mexican". I would not be surprised if someone does it again but it is worth a shot.

    Anyway, the card looks pretty good. The rest of the main card is:

    Mark Munoz VS Yushin Okami

    John Howard VS Jake Ellenberger

    Joe Stevenson VS Takonori Gomi

    It should be good follow-up event to the first Versus show.

  7. I can't wait for this card. I am picking Okami, Jake, and Gomi. I am planning a UFC party.

  8. The Janitor is also going to upset Jones…you all watch and see.

  9. CobraClutch says:

    Where's the party going to be? I would like to go. :)

  10. I'm gonna say jones by illegal 12 o'clock elbow to the face lol

  11. Kung Fu Panda says:

    After Jone's win, he has to move to the top of the division. He should go up against Forrest, Evans, or Jackson.

  12. I think the UFC is pacing him slower than that Panda, perhaps he'll begin that marathon in another year or so. He is an excellent fighter…

  13. Kung Fu Panda says:

    Yeah…and they will most likely keep him away from Bader. Who else would they match him up against? He already has won 3 or 4 fights, there can't be too many more 205'ers…I gues they can let him beat on Tito. Luiz Cain, Jardine, and Nog would really be the next guys for him.

  14. Kung Fu Panda says:

    Little Nog that is…plus I forgot Thiago Silva.
