The showdown will most likely take place at the yet-to-be-announced UFC 127, which is tentatively scheduled to take place on Feb. 5 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Ever since coming to the UFC, Jones has made a name for himself in short time, defeating the likes of Stephan Bonnar, Brandon Vera and Vladimir Matyushenko all in impressive fashion. His only "loss" was from a controversial disqualification against Matt Hamil.
Since winning The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 8, Bader has transformed from a one dimensional wrestler to a well rounded mixed martial artist. "Darth" took a step up in competition when he faced Keith Jardine and an even bigger step when he met Antonio Rogerio Nogueira. He passed both tests, knocking out Jardine and defeating Nogueira by unanimous decision to push his record to a perfect 12-0.
If the fight is finalized, it would be a rare instance where two up-and-coming prospects square off against one another with a potential title shot on the line.
