Jon Jones Confused By Decision To Make Rua-Vera No. 1 Contender Match

UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones has his focus set on Dan Henderson.

However, Monday afternoon, Jones was an interested observer during a media conference call that included four light heavyweights – all hoping for a future match with “Bones.”

When it was announced that the main event of UFC on FOX 4 between Mauricio “Shogun” Rua and Brandon Vera would be a No. 1 contender match, Jones was as confused as many others.

Jones will face Henderson in September at UFC 151, and it appears he could be on his way to a rematch if he wins that fight. Jones currently holds victories over both Rua and Vera.

      Yes but since the fight probably wouldn’t happen for at least 6 months from now it would be the biggest rematch within a 6 month period
