UFC 135 takes place Saturday night and the main card will air live on Pay-Per-View at 9PM ET. There will be two prelims that air live on Spike TV starting at 8PM ET. The event takes place from the Pepsi Center in Denver, Col.

The main event of Saturday’s card is light heavyweight champion, Jon Jones, defending his title against former champion, Quinton “Rampage” Jackson. Jones (13-1) comes into the fight as the clear favorite, with odds of -700 against Jackson (32-8), who has a money line of +450. Jones is just 24-years-old and has ran through the competition so far, using a great wrestling base with muay thai striking. Jones has a very long reach that allows him to stay out of danger. Jackson comes into the fight having won two-straight fights by decision. Known for his punching power and aggression, Jackson has finished just one of his last seven opponents. The real test for this game will be how Jones handles adversity if it comes his way. He has yet to have his chin tested or face any sort of adversity in the octagon.

Saturday’s co-main event is a welterweight contest with former champion Matt Hughes taking on Josh Koscheck. Koscheck is taking this bout on short notice, as Diego Sanchez was scheduled to face Hughes at first, but suffered an injury. Koscheck (17-5) has odds of -600 to beat Hughes (46-8), while the former champion has a money line of +400. Hughes struggles with superior strikers, which Koscheck is. Koscheck also has a wrestling game to match Hughes, so oddsmakers are having a hard time seeing Hughes win this fight.
