Jon Jones Expects October Fight Against Rampage Or Machida

UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones doesn't appear to see Rashad Evans in his distant future and expects a fall return to the Octagon after sitting out since winning the title from “Shogun” Rua in March.

The Champ was on the radio this week and discussed his possible return and his possible opponents when he does get back in the cage:

“I had to postpone my first title defense against Rashad Evans due to some torn tissues in my thumb. My last doctor's appointment they told me I should be able to get back to full out training within the next month. I'm excited about that. I'm expected to compete against Lyoto Machida or Rampage Jackson in maybe October, mid-October.”
