Dana White: Rashad Evans Wins and Remains Injury Free, He Gets Bones Jones Next   [View Full Version]
BuffaloDave » Posted 8/14/11 9:31:00PM

Speculation began to swirl last week after UFC president Dana White said in an interview that Jones was already done with his vacation and looking to get back in action sooner rather than later. He mentioned that Jones could potentially face former Strikeforce light heavyweight champion Dan Henderson next, with most pointing at the UFC 145 fight card in Montreal as a possible landing spot.

While anything is still possible, on Tuesday when speaking with the Jim Rome Show, White said that Jones is indeed ready to get back in the cage, but if Evans wins on Jan. 28 and comes out unscathed, he’ll get his chance to face the champion.

“We’re working on it now. We’re going to obviously see what happens in this Rashad fight at the end of the month. The next fight on Fox, Rashad is fighting (Phil) Davis, so we’ll see what happens there,” White said on Tuesday.

“If Rashad wins, if Rashad comes out injury free, we’ll get the Jon ‘Bones’ Jones/Rashad Evans fight going.”

Eff that, Jones vs Hendo now.

Jone is ready to fight and Hendo will be more ready than Evans, so Jones/Hendo can happen sooner.

If Evans wins, he can still get his title shot against Jones/Hendo winner.

I guess I can wait 18 days to find out which fight will end up being made.

I would prefer Jones vs Hendo, but I this is fair

I don't mind Rashad getting the shot if he wins. There is probably a greater level of marketability with Jones-Evans instead of Jones-Henderson. Also, regardless of the circumstances, "Suga" has been waiting in the wings for quite some time.

Dan might be getting up there, but waiting a couple extra months is no big deal. I would like to see him take on another fight before Jones anyhow.

Hendo vs. Thiago Silva anyone?

I also think Hendo stands a better chance than Evans, who will prolly get ragdolled. Hendo can land that H-bomb.

Going to be rooting hard for Phil Davis, that's for sure.
