"Jon Jones called about four days ago and said 'okay let's go, I'm done with vacation. He said he wanted to take all this time off and then they were calling me four days ago saying he wants to fight as soon as possible. He's ready to go. What could end up happening is Dan Henderson fights Jon Jones first, and then that would be close to the time that Rashad fights. Or we see how things go with Rashad versus Phil Davis and Rashad fights him first."

UFC President Dana White tells ESPN Radio in Las Vegas via Yahoo! Sports that light heavyweight champion Jon Jones has just ended a brief respite following his recent title defense against Lyoto Machida and is looking to fight as soon as possible, leading the UFC to potentially skip over Rashad Evans once again and hand a title shot to former Strikeforce title holder Dan Henderson.
