Dana White Confirms Dan Henderson Will Face Jon Jones Next

During tonight’s pre-fight press conference, UFC president Dana White confirmed that Dan Henderson was promised the winner of tonight’s main event between Jon Jones and Rashad Evans. When asked about what he thinks about the bout Jon Jones had this to say:

Dan Henderson is a great opponent. He’s a winner, and he has a huge fan base, so the haters will come out. … He has extreme knockout power, and I’m excited to conquer.

Obviously it’s too early to set a date for this bout, but one would have to presume that the UFC will be targeting a late summer date for this bout.
