Dana White thinking about booking Anthony Johnson vs. Jon Jones soon

on

UFC President Dana White said during his appearance on UFC Unfiltered that he wasn’t completely sold on giving Anthony Johnson (22-5 MMA, 13-5 UFC) a rematch with UFC light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier (18-1 MMA, 7-1 UFC). As seen at UFC 202, Johnson made quick work of Glover Teixeira at the event as he knocked him out in just seconds.

“I’m in a weird place. We saw that fight, and it was a great fight. I’ve still got to talk to (UFC matchmaker) Joe Silva and see what he thinks. But I’m thinking maybe we do Anthony Johnson vs. Jon Jones to see who gets to fight Daniel Cormier.”

That fight would depend on Jones’ status after his possible anti-doping violations. Jones tested positive for estrogen blockers prior to his fight with Daniel Cormier at UFC 200 and is facing a two-year suspension.
