Light heavyweight champion Jon Jones is set to take on former Strikeforce light heavyweight champion Dan Henderson on September 1 in Las Vegas. UFC President Dana White announced the matchup via twitter.
While there is currently no event scheduled for September 1, the bout will likely headline UFC 151 with UFC 150 and UFC 152 already scheduled.
The matchup was originally planned for UFC 149 but the bout was scrapped after Jones needed more time to rest after his UFC 145 victory over Rashad Evans.
