UFC on Versus 2 has officially changed locations. It will still be on August 1st. but instead of being in Salt Lake City, Utah, it will instead be held in San Diego, CA at the San Diego Sports Arena.
The organization stated the reason for the move was because of such low ticket sales. Dana White stated;
“Our television ratings in Salt Lake City have always been strong, and 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.”
The main event will be between light heavyweights Jon Jones (1o-1-0) and Vladimir Matyushenko (24-4-0). The co-main event will be between middleweights Yushin Okami (24-5-0) and Mark Munoz (8-1-0).
