Jon Jones vs. Dan Henderson being considered for UFC 149 in Calgary

by Tom Ngo | source:

Depending upon how reigning light heavyweight king Jon Jones recovers from Saturday’s lopsided victory over Rashad Evans, the 24-year-old could make his next title defense at UFC 149 against Dan Henderson. If UFC president Dana White gets his way, the 205-pound shootout will headline the July 21st festivities.

“[Jones'] hands are sore, you know, all the things that go along with coming out of a fight like that. We got to give them a few weeks to see how he feels and we’ll figure out what the main event is in Calgary,” White stated. “But that would be awesome. If we could make that fight, that would be great.”

Canada always deserves a big main event, indeed this is one.Cruz vs Faber would be stale. Canada deserves better.

Consider Dan vs Rua... Fight of the year. A real battle. They traded and traded. JJ steamrolled through Rua with ease though. Dan could shock us all, but, it's probably not happening.

After he defeats Dan, you'll still be saying JJ hasn't been tested...Lyoto tagged him good. Rashad kicked him right on the brain-stem, and landed 3-4 solid strikes... JJ has a good chin. And, considering how infrequently he gets touched, his chin isn't going to diminish any time soon.Dan is a beast, and he's not going to be timid sitting on the outside like Rashad. He's going to be like Chael and get in there and make it a fight. Unfortunately for Dan that probably means he's going to get blasted. But, he'll have the guts to go for it.

ThisPeople can hate on Jones all day, but you can't deny that the kid deserves respect. Jones is active and fighting without a break! He doesn't make any excuses to not take a fight and takes on difficult and dangerous opponents...I have gained more respect for this kid.

Jones' fight schedule reminds me of Nick Diaz' during his strikeforce days. A fighting champion is what zuffa needs.
