Default Well, I said I was waiting for the UFC to Announce it...

This looks official enough to me: http://www.ufc.com/news/ufc-135-fight-card-updates

Quote:
An electrifying title fight has been confirmed as the main event of UFC 135, taking place in Denver this September.

Light heavyweight champion Jon Jones and former light heavyweight boss Rampage Jackson have verbally agreed to the clash, said UFC president Dana White. Both men are coming off successes at UFC 128 and UFC 130, respectively, and after treating possible injuries, both have been medically cleared to compete.

MMA’s breakout star, Jones stunned the world in March with his third round TKO of Mauricio “Shogun” Rua to win the 205-pound belt. Jackson, who owned the title from 2007 to 2008, has put together back-to-back wins over Lyoto Machida and Matt Hamill to earn his long-awaited shot at regaining the crown.

Another big-boy rumble in the Rockies has also been added to the event, with Travis "Hapa" Browne fighting Rob "The Bear" Broughton. “Undefeated heavyweight Browne has verbally agreed to face Broughton, who is on a five-fight win streak," said White. Browne is coming off a KO of the Night victory over Stefan Struve at UFC 130, while Broughton last competed at UFC 120.

Hunt Battles Rothwell at UFC 135

Fresh from his KO of the Night performance against Chris Tuchscherer in February, Mark Hunt returns to the Octagon to face Ben Rothwell at UFC 135 this September.

“Verbal agreements are in for a battle between heavyweights as devastating striker Mark ‘The Super Samoan’ Hunt faces the 6’ 4” powerhouse Ben Rothwell on September 24 in Denver, Colorado,” said UFC President Dana White.

Yamamoto vs. Page in Denver
Dana White confirmed today that Damacio Page and 'Kid' Yamamoto have verbally agreed to fight at UFC 135 in September. Expect fireworks - “These are two of the most aggressive sluggers in the always-exciting bantamweight division," said White.

Diego Sanchez to face Hall of Famer Matt Hughes

Welterweight contender Diego Sanchez has never been shy in expressing his desire for a fight with UFC Hall of Famer Matt Hughes. This fall, Sanchez will get his wish, as he faces the legendary two-time welterweight champ on a date and at a venue to be announced.

“A matchup between two welterweight fan favorites has been verbally agreed to as Diego “The Dream” Sanchez will face former UFC welterweight champion and Hall of Famer Matt Hughes,” said UFC President Dana White. “Sanchez is coming off of a Fight of Night winning performance against Martin Kampmann and Hughes is looking to add another great victory to his incredible UFC career.”

Yeah, but that was from an independent journalistic source. This one is straight UFC.com!

I think Diego has always looked at Matt as the guy to beat if you want to prove yourself!
