Dana White: Rashad Evans Next In Line for Title Shot

UFC president Dana White shares his thoughts on the recent acquisition of Strikeforce on MMA Live. UFC light heavyweight challenger Jon Jones checks in in advance of his title fight with Shogun Rua at UFC 128.
"Well we have to see what happens here. We have to see who comes out of this fight unscathed and who is ready to roll again without injuries. Yeah, Rashad (Evans) is definitely next in line."
If Jon Jones wins on Saturday, Rashad Evans says he's open to fighting Jon Jones since everything went down: (via Pro MMA Radio)
"For my last camp when I got injured I went back to Albuquerque [to train with Greg Jackson] but I know I can go somewhere else to train. It may become more of a reality where I'm not using Greg at all. I've been playing around with the idea, thinking about where I'm gonna go and what I'm gonna do if this situation comes to a head. This situation is bigger than just me and Jon, it's a team. Just like the 155'ers are gonna have to decide 'Okay, you know what, now we gotta separate, we gotta go.' I mean we got Melvin Guillard, Clay Guida, Donald Cerrone and Joe Stevenson all in the same weight class. If we gotta fight, then we gotta get away from each other. I just have to sit down and decide, 'What's it gonna be?' because there's never gonna be no going back. There's no makin' it better or going back to the team after it's done. If [Jones and I] agree to fight, if we say we're gonna fight, it's over. I would divorce myself from Jacksons."
