Dana White Guarantees UFC in New York in 2012, Wants Jon Jones to Compete

UFC President, Dana White gives some more insight on the legalisation of mixed martial arts in the state of New York, even going as far as to guarantee it will happen before this year is out and dropping a name of a certain 205lb champion as well.

White, speaking via The MMA Fight Corner, said:

“We’re so close. It’s going to happen, and I guarantee you it’s going to happen this year. I guarantee you it’s going to happen this year. It’s going to depend on what it happens, timing and everything else, but obviously, it would be nice to go in there with, probably, Jon Jones.”
