UFC NEWS – UFC Eyes April For Jones Return: Evans, Davis or Henderson Possible Opponents

January 16, 2012 12:00 pm by Pedro Carrasco

It appears as if UFC light-heavyweight champion Jon Jones will have to wait until April for his return to action.

Originally wanting to take some time off after a rough 2011 schedule, the champ came out this month stating his desires to return to action as soon as possible.

UFC officials are willing to grant the champ his wish, however the soonest they are prepared to book him is for an April appearance. As it sits now the only April show officially announced by promotion officials is UFC 146 set for Atlanta Georgia.

Later this month Rashad Evans faces Phil Davis in a number one contender bout. The consensus is that should Evans come out of the bout victorious and injury free that he will be next to face Jones. However, if Evans fails to capture victory or walk away from the bout healthy the person next in line is Dan Henderson.

Until Evans and Davis face off on UFC on Fox 2 they champion’s next opponent is yet to be determined, but something tells me Dan Henderson just turned into a huge Phil Davis fan.
