Jones will return to action following his destruction of Brandon Vera at UFC on Versus 1.

Matyushenko is no slouch. His 24-4 record speaks for itself, only losing to some tough fighters like Antonio Rogerio Nogueira, Tito Ortiz and Andrei Arlovski.

    If I were Jones I'd be a little pissed. This is a step back. He should be fighting someone closer to the top. Yeah, The Janitor doesn't suck, and can kick my ass in a minute flat, but Jon Jones is The Man! Hopefully, he'll sweep up the janitor and prove it so we can see him keep climbing that ladder!

    Agreed, this is a wasted match up. Vera was ranked way above Matyushenko. Jones should at least have somebody from the top 10. Thiago Silva makes more sense. I don't think he's fighting anybody.

    well they justify it with record but i have a feeling hes gonna just notch another, he needs a step up in competition, not big, but a step up. couture brings it against anyone, i would be curious to see how he reacts against a huge name
