Dana White says Jon Jones vs. Rashad Evans is NOT happening at UFC 140Posted on October 5, 2011, 04:46 PM by Trent Reinsmith
Earlier this afternoon the MMA world was abuzz with the news that UFC was working on lining up a light heavyweight title bout between Jon Jones and Rashad Evans for UFC 140, a fight card that is set to take place on December 10 from Toronto, Ontario’s Air Canada Centre.
However, at this time there is one person that is adamant that the fight has not been booked and that it will not be the main event on the card and that person is UFC President Dana White,
White recently took to twitter to offer his take on the reports:
Don't listen to these HACK s**t websites!! Jones vs Evans is not true.
Jones recently defended his title for the first time, submitting Rampage Jackson via rear naked choke in the fourth round of their bout at UFC 135, which took place on September 24. For his part, Evans is riding a three fight-winning streak since losing the title to Lyoto Machida at UFC 98.
