UFC 126: Jon Jones vs. Ryan Bader in Jeopardy

According to MMA Weekly at today's fan Q&A:
"I don't know if Jon Jones is going to fight Ryan Bader," Dana White said. "We tried to put that fight together, but Bader has some stuff going on. Jon Jones might be fighting somebody else, I don't know how that's going to go."

"(Jon Jones) is going to have to go through a couple of guys before he gets a title shot, but at the rate Jon Jones is going he could be fighting for the title next year."
The "some stuff going on" - includes Ryan Bader getting married at the end of October and opening a new gym, Power MMA & Fitness later this year.
