Scroll down and click Dana White - UFC President

 

At around the 3:55 mark Dana announces that Jon Jones will fight someone in the top 8 sometime early next year. So let us speculate to pass the time.

 

Winner of Nogueira vs Bader? They're fighting at 119.

 

Loser/Winner of Machida vs Rampage? They're fighting in November.

 

Then there's Forrest. Although speculated, nothing has been confirmed, but it would make for a good fight.

 

I don't think he would fight Evans unless it were for the title, as they both train at Jackson's, but you never know.

 

Anyone have any other ideas?

Rich Franklin and Forrest Griffin are about the only people he can fight soon because for him to wait for lil nog vs bader would take to long same thing with rampage vs machida he would have to wait for a long time so it wont be them unfortunaltly, like i said it will be either Rich Franklin or forrest Griffin who ever recovers from there injury first will fight him?

originally it was

 

UFC 123 Jones vs. Forrest

 

i was thinking it could be Franklin vs. Jones as Rich was set to return in december but now i'm think it will probably be Rich vs. Forrest at UFC 124

 

so it looks like this

 

UFC 124 Franklin vs. Griffin

UFC 125/126 Jones vs. Thiago Silva Lil Nog/Bader winner or Couture

oh ya i didnt know that Griffin vs Franklin would be a great fight!

 

I dont think Rich Franklin would be able to hang

 

Are you kidding me Rich Franklin is a really good fighter extremely underrated he could be champion of LHW' date=' i think he could be beat almost every1 in the LHW divison

 

Dana said he won't be fighting until next year.

 

Bone wont fight until then?

it's not a guarantee Forrest and Franklin i think a lot depends on what happens with Couture this Saturday, although it's not a 205 contest if he gets through w/pout injury it opens a lot of doors for LHW

Yeah. Dana said that the LHW division is all set up until the end of the year, and they'll wait until the dust clears until deciding who he's fighting next.

To his credit, Forrest has said in the past that he "will fight anybody"...and I believe him. However the fact that he will fight anybody does not mean that he fears nobody

 

He said in an interview that he hopes he doesn't fight Bones and that Bones would do to him pretty much what Anderson Silva did to him (AKA hurt him badly).. just youtube it you should be able to find this interview if you haven't already seen it..

 

Sorry, I like Forrest he's a good guy but he's never going to be the champion again he's just not explosive or mean enough for that division
