UFC NEWS – Hendo Won’t Skip His Way Into Jones Fight If Evans Wins At UFC on FOX 2
[box_light]“We’re working on it now. We’re going to obviously see what happens in this Rashad fight at the end of the month. The next fight on FOX, Rashad is fighting (Phil) Davis, so we’ll see what happens there. If Rashad wins, if Rashad comes out injury free, we’ll get the Jon ‘Bones’ Jones vs. Rashad Evans fight going.”[/box_light]
UFC president Dana White is going to stay true to his word and has decided to wait out this month’s UFC on FOX 2 main event before determining who will get the next crack at Jon Jones, who is ready to return to action.
As he revealed on yesterday’s Jim Rome show, Dana White confirmed the plans to have Evans face Jones for the UFC’s light-heavyweight title if he can get passed Phil Davis in the evening’s main event.
However, it would appear as if a Davis victory would not put him in as a lock for the title fight and that the UFC may opt for Dan Henderson in the event of an Evans loss.
Good news for Rashad who has been the long standing number one-contender for more than a year, but for one reason or another has yet to try and earn his belt back.
