From Brandon Vera's Twitter:

just found out I'm firing Jon Bones Jones on March 21st in Denver Colorado. hope u heard it here first!!!!

We reported late last night that Antonio Rogerio Nogueira had to pull out of his UFC 109 match up with Brandon Vera.  I was pretty vocal when that fight was announced that I wasn't a fan of it because I felt it was a step backwards for Nogueira after destroying Luis Cane at UFC 106.  However, this fight between Jon Jones and Brandon Vera is a great match up to see where Jon Jones stands in the division.  Vera's stand up skills coupled with his size and wrestling ability makes this fight all the more intriguing.  Who you got in this one?

[Update] from Sherdog
