Dan Henderson Could Jump Evans and Davis to Face Jon Jones at UFC 145

After Jon Jones defeated Lyoto Machida at UFC 140 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, The champ said he was planning an extended vacation after four fights in 2011. Now according to UFC president Dana White, Jones has had enough downtime already, and he’s calling for another fight as soon as possible.

White, speaking via ESPN 1100 in Las Vegas, said:

“The funny thing you should say about Jon Jones and him saying he wants some time off, he called up four days ago and said ‘okay, let’s go I’m done with vacation.’ He said he wanted to take all this time off and then they were calling me four days ago saying he wants to fight as soon as possible. He’s ready to go”

Now with the champion ready to come back just three weeks after his last fight, White may offer the vacant main event at UFC 145 in Montreal, Quebec, Canada and all signs point towards former Strikeforce light heavyweight champion, Dan Henderson.

White already stated:

“What could end up happening is Dan Henderson fights Jon Jones first, and then it would be close to the time that Rashad (Evans) fights. Or we see how things go with Rashad and Rashad fights him first”
