Thursday, November 21, 2013

Jon Jones was announced to defend his title against Glover Teixeria at UFC 170, and the next day, he was not. When can we expect to see Jon Jones return to action? MMAFighting has the report:

According to Jones’ manager Malki Kawa, Jones “needs a mental and physical break” to recover after a busy 2013, after which Jones expects to resume training in January, with the hopes of entering camp injury-free.

“Jon Jones went back in the gym and just didn’t feel good,” UFC President Dana White said recently. “He said his legs were still bothering him and his eye is bothering him. He still banged up from that fight.

“That fight wasn’t that long ago. It’s like being in a car accident.”
