UFC champ Jon Jones: I'm fighting Quinton "Rampage" Jackson next

Quote:
The hand injury that Quinton "Rampage" Jackson sustained this past Saturday at UFC 130 is serious – but perhaps not serious enough to stall his career.

As light-heavyweight champion Jon "Bones" Jones (13-1 MMA, 7-1 UFC) tells it, Jackson (32-8 MMA, 7-2 UFC) will get a shot at his belt.

"I'll be fighting Quinton 'Rampage' Jackson next," Jones told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) on Thursday. "I'm not allowed to discuss the date because I didn't sign a contract, but yeah, it will be very soon."

The announcement may come as a surprise to those familiar with Jackson's recent health history. The Nevada State Athletic Commission suspended him this week following his lopsided decision win over Matt Hamill at UFC 130, which took place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. The former champ had to get his left hand X-rayed and could be suspended until Nov. 25 if an injury was found. He can, however, gain clearance before that from an orthopedic doctor.

Jackson said he first hurt his hand while horsing around with teammates over the holidays and re-injured it in camp. The fight with Hamill did little but aggravate it further. However, it appears that the severity of the injury, which UFC president Dana White said could give Lyoto Machida or Rashad Evans the next title shot, has been downgraded.

White also said the title shot was Jackson's should he be healthy by fall.

"Bones" has wrestled with his own injuries, or specifically, one injury. He was expected to undergo surgery on a long-bothersome hand ligament, which scratched a potential fight with Evans at UFC 133. The promotion instead booked Evans to meet standout Phil Davis at the Aug. 6 event. Soon afterward, Jones caught fans by surprise when he announced that his doctor ruled against surgery and that he expected to return to the cage in the fall. But officials said it was too late to scratch Evans' UFC 133 headliner with Davis.

Jones said Thursday that his hand is "totally fine" and will be good to go for a fight with Jackson.

When would he like to return to the cage?

"September," he said.

If Jones gets his way, two options may accommodate him. "UFC Fight Night 25: Battle on the Bayou" is slated for Sept. 17 in New Orleans, and UFC 135 is targeted for Sept. 24 in Denver. However, the financial upside is far greater for Jones with a pay-per-view event since he receives a cut of its profits.

So, UFC 135 appears a likely option.

If the champ gets his way.
Can't wait. I would love to see how Jones reacts getting punched in the face by rampage, he really hasn't been tested like that.

This is a broken record. We heard the same thing before the Shogun fight. If Jones fights Rampages fight then yeah he could get caught. But Jones can fight an exciting fight out of the pocket and make Rampage look like he doesn't belong in there. Unless Page changes his style and thinks about taking down Jones this could be a quick fight or a long beating.

Rampage is gonna get ragdolled like the rest...

If he thinks he can stuff JBJ's TDs because he stuffed Hammill he is mistaken...

I think I would give Lyoto a decent chance at not getting destroyed, but Rampage only has a puncher's chance...IMHO of course

I've seen Shogun fight, and I've seen Rampage fight, neither guy is his biggest test, that's Machida. But when it comes to Jones, Shogun stood a lot better of a chance than Rampage did, Rampage's only chance is a wild punch or a slam, atleast when Shogun/Jones was on the ground, Shogun was a threat there, Rampage isn't going to look for a submission once Jones takes him down, Rampage also isn't going to use kicks or knees. Shogun is a bigger test than Rampage for Jones and in all fairness, he's already beat one guy so bad he had no other choice but to tap to strikes and he's probably going to do the same to Rampage.

Jones smashes both guys in all honesty, his real test will come in the form of Machida, and if he beats Machida, I'll pretty much have to say that no one in MMA right now will beat him and he'll only get beat by the next generation of MMA fighters.

I have seen most of Rampage (My favorite fighter with JBJ and Lyoto) and most of Shogun's fights. I do think that Page by far hits harder but doesnt present as many dangers as Shogun did. I believe he can put anyone to sleep but his ability to go after someone is not the same. He waits to counter punch but has a hard time with people with long arms (Jardine and Forrest). The only time they got caught is when getting in the pocket. Even if Rampage stuffs the TD, which he may be able too, and even if he avoids damage in the clinch against the cage, he can still get picked apart. I just dont think JBJ has as much to worry about in this fight as his last.
