Earlier this week, rumors were flying around that if Rashad Evans beat Phil Davis at UFC on FOX 2, he would be fighting Dan Henderson next. Evans has been making his wishes known, that he wants to fight Jon Jones. He may get that wish after all.
UFC president Dana White spoke today on the Jim Rome Show and made the statement that if Evans beats Davis injury free, he’ll get his shot at the champ, Bones Jones.
“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,” White said.
“If Rashad wins, if Rashad comes out injury free, we’ll get the Jon ‘Bones’ Jones/Rashad Evans fight going.”
As for Henderson, if Phil Davis gets the best of Rashad, he might just be next in line for Jones.
