Jon Jones' next title defense likely will come in early September.

Earlier this week, UFC president Dana White said the UFC's light-heavyweight champion is expected to meet No. 1 contender Dan Henderson on Labor Day weekend.

Although no event has been announced, that'd mean a possible Sept. 1 date, likely as UFC 151.

Labor Day is Sept. 3. If UFC 151 takes place Sept. 1, it'll come three weeks after UFC 150 in Denver and three weeks prior to UFC 152 in Toronto.

At a press conference this past month, White said Jones (16-1 MMA, 10-1 UFC) vs. Henderson (29-8 MMA, 5-2 UFC) was a possibility for UFC 149, which takes place July 21 at Calgary's Scotiabank Saddledome. However, during a meeting with reporters earlier this week, White said the title fight now is expected at the later date, likely to give Jones some rest and recovery after a busy 2011 and early-2012 campaign.

I am gonna try to go. Labor day weekend doesn't help

I really thought 150 would get it. But now with Edgar vs Benson not happening

I am more curious than ever what the main event of 150 will be in Denver.

My guess would be rashad Evans vs alexander gustalffson. Or should be. Condit vs hendricks / Kos winner
