Those guys have made it very clear that they will fight each other," White claims in an appearance at UFC Tonight, "We'll see what happens. That's not the plan right now here today, but it's definitely a fight I would like to see."

Jon Jones under investigation for perjury
Jon Jones told the Nevada Athletic Commission (NAC) in September that he lost his Nike endorsement due to a brawl he had with Daniel Cormier during a press event in the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Last week, Jones backtracked from that statement and now the Nevada deputy attorney general is reviewing whether or not Jones perjured himself under oath at the hearing, MMAFighting.com has learned. NAC executive director Bob Bennett said the commission is aware of Jones' comments prior to UFC 182 and the matter has been sent up the ladder. "They're considering it for review," Bennett said. "It's nothing new to us. "It would be concerning if anyone lied during testimony."
