UFC President Dana White dropped a bomb on Tuesday when he revealed that he was thinking about a potential UFC light heavyweight title eliminator fight between Anthony Johnson and Jon Jones.

Jones was pulled from the main event fight against champion Daniel Cormier at UFC 200 in July for an Anti-Doping Policy violation, but has recently stated that he and his team have found out good news regarding the case.

White also reiterated that things are looking much better than initially anticipated, which sparked the idea of a fight between Johnson and Jones, but didn’t make any firm decision as of yet.

“Rumble” reacted to the news on twitter by saying, “Breaking news: I’m laughing hysterically”
