During yeserday’s ‘The Time is Now’ press conference, UFC president Dana White laid out the 2015 octagon schedule while detailing some possible title shots:

“The Cormier-Jones fight is a fight people have been talking about for a long time,” White told FOX Sports, as transcribed by David St. Martin for MMAFighting. “At the same time, Anthony Johnson and Gustafsson will fight and both the winners of those fights will match up later on this year.”

“Every one of these fights leads to a bigger fight. Anderson Silva is fighting Nick Diaz, then Chris Weidman and Vitor Belfort will fight. Anderson Silva could fight the winner of that fight.”

“Then you have Connor McGregor,. Everybody has been talking about Conor McGregor. This kid burst onto the scene and if he wins in Boston – and that fight is live and free on FOX Sports 1 – if he wins that fight in Boston we could be talking about a big fight with Jose Aldo.”

“Cub Swanson has been screaming for respect and for us to show him the love. He’s taking on Frankie Edgar, who is a beast. Longtime champion at 155 pounds, moved down the 145 pounds to take on Cub. And yes, if Cub Swanson wins this fight we did tell him we would give him a title shot.”
