Dana White: Jon Jones wants to fight as soon as possible, Dan Henderson is a possibilityPosted on January 8, 2012, 11:05 AM by Anton Gurevich
"Jones called about four days ago and said 'okay let's go, I'm done with vacation. He said he wanted to take all this time off and then they were calling me four days ago saying he wants to fight as soon as possible.
He's ready to go. What could end up happening is fights Jon Jones first, and then [Jones' subsequent fight] would be close to the time that Rashad fights. Or we see how things go with Rashad [versus ] and Rashad fights him first." - ESPN1100/98.9 FM via Yahoo! Sports
UFC President Dana White shared his thoughts about the "positive mess" in the UFC Light Heavyweight division. On January 28th, Rashad Evans will look to secure his spot as the #1 Contender in the UFC Light Heavyweight division, facing the undefeated Phil Davis in the main event of UC on FOX 2. If victorious against Davis, Evans is expected to get the first shot at Jones, while Dan Henderson is a reserve option in case of Evans' injury, or perhaps Phil Davis' victory. One way or another, Jon Jones is expected to make his return to the cage sometime between March and May.
