An ankle injury has forced recent UFC addition Antonio Rogerio Nogueira out of a planned bout with fellow light heavyweight Brandon Vera (11-4 MMA, 7-4 UFC) on Feb. 6 at UFC 109.

While the latest bout cancellation in the UFC – which was first reported by Sherdog.com – may cause many fans to groan, the potential replacement contest may result in the complete opposite.

MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) has learned from sources close to the organization that the UFC is targeting Vera for a potential headlining contest against Jon Jones (9-1 MMA, 3-1 UFC) at an as-yet-unannounced UFC Fight Night 21 event on March 31 in Denver, Colo.

I can't wait for this one. I'm expecting Bones to take out his frustrations on Brandon Vera.

Awesome. I've never been a fan of Vera. I'd like to see Jones win this one convincingly.

I wonder why they dont just have Jones fill in on the 6th? I guess this means maia/miller to the main card

Awesome fight, I gotta say I think Bones is gonna take this fight and finish Vera off.

He beat the hell out of Hammil, and I would pick Hammil in a fight over Vera any day.

While I am excited by this fight, I believe Lil' Nog to be a better fighter. I guess we will see how legit Jones is. Hopefully this goes to the ground, if for no other reason than to see how Jones does there.

Jones will suplex Vera until he dies. Just that simple.
