Dana White: Jon Jones isn't ready for a title shot -- yet

Quoteworthy:

"I’d like to see him get another year under his belt. And in that year, before he got a shot at the title, he’d have to take out Rashad (Evans), Rampage (Quinton Jackson), possibly Shogun (Mauricio Rua) or (Lyoto) Machida, and then get the title shot. There aren’t many guys out there like this guy. God knows what this guy can do. It’s going to be interesting to watch."

UFC President Dana White is impressed with the display Jon Jones has put on during his short time on the Zuffa roster; however, White isn't ready to say he's a title contender (yet) even with his skull-cracking win over Brandon Vera at last Sunday's UFC on Versus event from Denver. Since "Bones" is now a part of Team Jackson it's unlikely he'll face "Sugar" en route to the title, but what about Rampage? Or Thiago Silva? Fantasy matchmakers, let's hear your picks.
