“Jon Jones went back in the gym and just didn’t feel good,” White said, while referring to the epic war Jones engaged in with Alexander Gustafsson at UFC 165 in September. “He said his legs were still bothering him and his eye is bothering him. He still banged up from that fight.”

“That fight wasn’t that long ago,” he said. “It’s like being in a car accident.”

White relayed that they’re hoping to book the bout for March. Hopefully Jones is ready to go sooner than later.

UFC 170, meanwhile, is expected to take place at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.
