After we watched Jon Jones’ big toe roll in a direction that toes aren’t supposed to roll during his first round victory against Chael Sonnen at UFC 159, we figured that it would be a while before he fought again, because it had been reported that he had suffered a serious fracture. Then Jones finished his post-fight pizza and he was all, “It’s not broken, just dislocated” and he claimed that he’d be fighting again in six-to-eight weeks.
Well, if that is true and he is indeed fully recovered within the next month or so, then he may have a special seat at ringside when Anderson Silva faces Chris Weidman, the No. 1 contender to his UFC Middleweight belt, at UFC 162 on July 6. That’s because Dana White has gone from teasing a Georges St-Pierre/Silva superfight to a Jones/Silva superfight.
