UFC Quick Quote: Jon Jones waiting for the winner of Ryan Bader vs Rogerio Nogueira

Jon_jones_2_medium

"Right now I'm waiting for Ryan Bader and Lil' Nog to fight each other and I'll fight the winner of that, and I'm predicting that I'm about two fights away from a title shot. I had a meeting with Dana and Lorenzo and that's kind of where were going with it. They didn't really say two fights. They said you know, you beat the winner of Bader/Lil' Nog, we'll give you one more fight. We'll see you know how you win the fights, depending on the fashion of the finish, then you know, we'll give you a title shot."

With former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Forrest Griffin apparently out of the picture, the seemingly-invincible Jon Jones talks to Inside MMA about his fast track to the division title after steamrolling the better part of the 205-pound division. Does the ability to defeat "Darth" or "Minotoro" establish him as the number one contender? Or does he need one more big name before earning his shot?
