UFC Live: Jones vs. Matyushenko was a mixed martial arts event held by the Ultimate Fighting Championship on Sunday, August 1, 2010. Originally scheduled to take place at the EnergySolutions Arena in Salt Lake City, Utah, the UFC was forced to move the event to a different venue due to low ticket sales.

The event was the second UFC event to be broadcast on Versus; the first being UFC Live: Vera vs. Jones.
"Big" John McCarthy was a referee at this event, the first time he has refereed at a UFC event in almost 3 years.
