Dana White recently confirmed that the winner of Mauricio Rua vs. Brandon Vera on UFC on Fox 4 would be getting a title shot at the light heavyweight title. Seeing as both men have already lost badly to the champ and both have only recorded one win since, it left several fans and analysts confused about the announcement.
Among those confused is the champ himself. Jon Jones took to twitter and was asking fans to keep him "up-to-date on what's being said at today's press conference". When word came that Vera and Shogun are fighting for a title shot, Jones immediately sent out a brief reaction:
Well, we are confused too, but I guess it's really because the Light Heavyweight division is suddenly one of the most shallow divisions in the UFC. If he gets by Dan Henderson, who else is available?
UPDATE: Dana White has since reacted to this tweet: "He can scratch his head all he wants," White said with a laugh. "Scratch away."
