Spike TV Countdown to UFC 135: Jon Jones vs Rampage Jackson Discussion Post

This post is going up last minute but right now on Spike TV, the countdown show for UFC 135 starts right now. This event will be the UFC's return to Denver, Colorado and the first title defense for champion Jon Jones. Rampage Jackson will be coming in as a major underdog but word from his camp, he's in the best shape that he's ever been in while in the UFC. Jon Jones is coming off his dominating win over Mauricio Shogun Rua to win the belt. Following that win, he was the focus of some controversy as it was expect that he would be defending his belt against former teammate Rashad Evans. Jones was expected to receive surgery on his thumb but after a second opinion, it was deemed that the surgery was not needed. The Evans fight fell apart and Rampage Jackson got the call. 

Also on the card is Matt Hughes, who was first booked to face Diego Sanchez after being knocked out by B.J. Penn. An injury to Sanchez forced the UFC to add Josh Koscheck to the show as a last minute replacement. Join Bloody Elbow for a discussion of the Countdown to UFC 135: Jones vs Jackson airing right now on Spike TV.
