UFC waiting on the winner of Rampage/Hamill?
The Jon Jones putting off surgery news came to light just yesterday so it's still early, but his manager has pretty much confirmed that Rashad Evans won't be his next fight.
Now that doesn't make much sense to me, but does anyone else feel the UFC is waiting for the outcome of Rampage/Hamill to give Jones his next challenge?
I feel if Rampage wins, especially with a vicious KO, they'll give him the shot, but if Hamill wins or Rampage looks very bad in winning they'll give Rashad the shot, and possibly book Machida/Hamill or Machida/Rampage 2. In turn pulling Rashad out of the Davis fight,
I don't think they're looking at giving Machida a title shot, not yet anyway I'm thinking if Rampage KO's Hamill they'll for some strange reason, give him Vera just for the sake of giving him a fight and a winnable fight to help him get back "in the mix". Phil Davis would be another option, unless he wants to take that time off like he talked about earlier.
