The Ultimate Fighting Championship has announced the first bouts to feature at the March-21 installment of the show, UFC on Versus 1, to mark the organization’s maiden broadcast on the Versus cable television channel.
Having fought January 2nd, when he managed his fourth knockout for the organization against Gilbert Yvel, Junior Cigano fights again. The date for the bout leaves him less than three months to prepare and the opponent called up to face him is Jiu-Jitsu black belt Gabriel Gonzaga. The two were supposed to have faced off at UFC 108, but Gonzaga suffered an infection and had to pull out.
Other bouts confirmed for the show are between Jon Jones and Brandon Vera, John Howard and Anthony Johnson, Eliot Marshall against Vladimir Matyushenko, but there are speculations as to the other matchups.
