UFC comes to San Diego on Sunday night

August 1, 2010 |  8:04 am

An Ultimate Fighting Championship fight card that was supposed to be in Utah but was relocated to San Diego due to poor ticket sales now has tickets at prices as low as $40 for those in need of a rare Sunday-night fight fix.

The second UFC on Versus card will be headlined by a light-heavyweight bout between the acrobatic Jon Jones (10-1) and Vladimir Matyushenko (24-4). UFC President Dana White said a victory by Jones will leave him planted in the stacked light-heavyweight division's top eight, poised for a title shot next year.

The 10-fight card, which begins live at 3 p.m. and at 6 p.m. on Versus, will also include a middleweight fight between Mark Munoz (8-1) and Yushin Okami (25-5).
