One of the bigger stories in the sport in the last few days has been Jon Jones not signing the deal to fight Alexander Gustafsson in their planned rematch. The Jones/Gustafsson rematch has always been the UFC's plan, both men fought once after their classic first encounter with a rematch as the next step.
Daniel Cormier is supposed to be there for the winner, but Dana White stated on the UFC.com feature "The Download"that Jones isn't interested in the rematch and wants to skip ahead to the Cormier fight.
On The Download, White says, "what we're doing right now is trying to get him to sign the bout agreement for Gustafsson. He doesn't want to fight Gustafsson. ... Lorenzo and I have a meeting with Jones on Thursday to get him to sign the bout agreement, and he's asking to fight Cormier instead."
Cormier, of course, recently stated that he would be willing to fight Gustafsson for an interim title if Jones refused to sign on for the planned rematch.
