Jon Jones: “I’m expected to compete against Lyoto Machida or Rampage Jackson in October”

UFC light heavyweight champion, Jon Jones has revealed that despite postponing his title defense against Rashad Evans, it will not mean waiting for his former friend and training partner since he’s already been lined up to face either Lyoto Machida or Quinton “Rampage” Jackson next time out as early as mid-October.

Jones, speaking via SportsRadioInterviews.com, said:

“I had to postpone my first title defense against Rashad Evans due to some torn tissues in my thumb. My last doctor’s appointment they told me I should be able to get back to full out training within the next month. I’m excited about that. I’m expected to compete against Lyoto Machida or Rampage Jackson in maybe October, mid-October.”
