Jon Jones will face the winner of Bader vs Little Nog, as Vitor Belfort is set to fight Yushin Okami at the UFC 122 headlinerPosted on August 30, 2010, 07:00 AM by Anton Gurevich
According to Jon Jones' agent Malki Kawa, the young UFC superstar is almost certain to square off against the winner of Ryan Bader vs Minotoro Nogueira UFC 119 bout. Kawa revealed about Jon Jones challenging Rich Franklin, Forrest Griffin and Randy Couture, as now it looks like the young Light Heavyweight will have to wait for the UFC 119 co-main event winner:
"Just so you guys know, @jonnybones did ask for any one of the guys you tweeted: forrest, franklin and couture. Let's see who'll step up and do it. Right now it looks like winner of lil nog and bader. All are great opponents and @jonnybones would welcome the challenge."
Elsewhere, Wrestling Observer's Dave Meltzer reports that the MMA veteran Vitor Belfort will square off against Yushin Okami at the UFC 122 headliner in Germany. Vitor Belfort was quoted saying one week ago that he would prefer making his next fight in USA, but now it looks like "The Phenom" will have to make the trip to Oberhausen, Germany. If true, we might see a rematch between Sonnen and Silva before the end of the year:
"Vitor Belfort vs. Yushin Okami will be the main event of UFC 122 on 11/13 in Oberhausen, Germany. This will be a Spike show in the U.S. The winner will likely face the Anderson Silva vs. Chael Sonnen winner for the middleweight title sometime next year."
