Jon Jones Next Fight Official for UFC 145 in Atlanta

UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones is set to defend his title in the main event of UFC 145 on April 21 in Atlanta, but who he will face has not been decided yet and depends on tonight’s UFC on Fox 2 main event between Rashad Evans and Phil Davis.

UFC President Dana White announced the news during UFC on Fox 2, which featured Jones as an analyst alongside hall of famer Randy Couture.

Jones (15-1) choked out Lyoto Machida in December for his second title defense and fourth win of the year. “Bones” planned to take several months off, but asked the UFC to book his next fight after only a few weeks and will likely meet Evans, his ex-teammate and former light heavyweight champion, or Davis, an undefeated NCAA wrestling champion.

Stay tuned to for more on Jones’ next fight at UFC 145.
