Jon Jones recently pulled out of a title fight with his 'divorced' team mate Rashad Evans, citing a need for surgery on his hans. Now manager Malki Kawa reveals via twitter that Jones has decided against surgery, and that he is fighting soon, but not vs. Rashad.



I guess its time to put out the truth. @Jonnybones suffered a tear in his thumb in 2 different spots... Every dr he saw said to have surgery

...

We went to meet with the surgeon on wed and after he looked at @Jonnybones he thought that surgery was a bit evasive and bones didn't have ... To have if he didn't want to. @Jonnybones decided against surgery, and we immediately met with dana and lorenzo the next day to get his next fight scheduled

...

For the record, every doctor @Jonnybones saw was a @ufc referred doctor. The very last one on the day before surgery thought against it...



No @Jonnybones is not fighting rashad. Rashad is fighting phil davis. I'll let you know who or when jon will fight real soon...by end of year.

Well that's a bit stupid. I'm sure he's not but that just looks like he's avoiding Rashad

Cant see Dana letting Jones pick his opponents, one thing about the UFC is the best fight the best or get stripped. if he doesnt fight Evans then i cant see him being LHW champ long

I just dont think he wants to fight Rashad considering their history

I usually try not to get into the drama. But you're right. It seems like ducking almost...

So you think they'll just change Davis' opponent or wait til after the fight?
