Two veteran welterweights square off

A welterweight bout between Diego Sanchez and UFC Hall of Famer Matt Hughes is now official for the co-main event of UFC 135.

The event takes place Sept. 24 at the Pepsi Center in Denver. Jon Jones defends his light heavyweight title against Rampage Jackson in the main event.

Sanchez is riding a two-fight winning streak after consecutive victories over Paulo Thiago and Martin Kampmann. His bout with Kampmann at UFC on Versus 3 is considered an early contender for fight of the year.

Hughes, meanwhile, has not stepped in the cage since losing in just 21 seconds to B.J. Penn last November.
