Jon Jones 100% Healthy Says White


“[Jones is] good. He’s 100 percent. I talked to him [on Saturday], and he said he feels great. The only thing that’s sore on him is his calf. It’s a little sore. I’d like to give these guys time to rest and give them a little break, so we’ll see what happens.”

UFC president Dana White confirmed to the media during the UFC on Versus 6 post-fight press conference that his light-heavyweight champion is in fact healthy.

Following his UFC 135 victory over Rampage Jackson we reported that the Colorado Athletic commission had suspended Jon Jones for six-months. However, according to White it doesn’t appear that the champ will be out for an extended period of time after all and we may get that grudge match between Rashad Evans and Jones sooner than later.

Good news for Jones fans!
