Jon Jones Will Get Immediate Title Shot Upon His Return

Jon Jones has a lot on his plate right now, dealing with his legal problems stemming from felony charges laid on him after he was involved in a hit-and-run that left a pregnant women with a broken arm. Which in turn lead to Jones being stripped of his UFC title and suspended.

UFC president Dana White isn't giving any kind of time frame for Jones' return to the octagon, nor is he saying that it will definitely happen. White was interviewed on The Jim Rome Show and said, "Obviously he's been stripped of the title, he's not fighting anymore, and he's got these legal issues he's got to deal with. Once he gets through those, he's either going to end up with a felony or jail time, or a felony and jail time. So I don't know how this thing is going to play out. We'll see how it goes."

However, with that in mind, White did also confirm that, should Jon Jones return to the UFC, he would get an immediate title shot:

"He comes right back and he fights for the title... He hasn't had the time that Anderson Silva's had, but he is the most dominant champion."

"If you look at the murderer's row of the 205-pound division that he went through, and he just went through it like a hot knife through butter, I mean, he's the man. So whenever he gets his stuff together, he'd come right back and fight for the title."
