While UFC President Dana White cast doubt Friday over a rumored fight between rising light light heavyweights Jon Jones and Ryan Bader, the anticipated matchup remains likely for February’s UFC 126 and is expected to be signed soon, Jones’ agent, Malki Kawa, confirmed with MMAFighting.
“I don’t know if Jones is going to fight Bader,” White said earlier Friday at the UFC Fan Expo in London. “We tried to put that fight together, but Bader has some stuff going on. Jon Jones might be fighting somebody else, I don’t know how that’s going to go.”
Bader’s upcoming wedding pushed the planned fight back from January’s UFC 125, but as of now the fight will still go on as scheduled.
