    This is all just to save face with the USADA situation. If they announce it too soon it'll look sketchy and show some behind the scenes string pulling. Instead, the UFC is putting out this front that they're scrambling to find a main, even considering starting a new division or creating another interim belt. In a few days or so dana is gonna be like "look, we scrambled to find a main, but this is what we've got. Jones stepped up on short notice and took the fight". makes it look like a last resort and makes jon look good.

    This makes the most sense actually. They're going to act like they moved Jones-Gus to UFC 230 instead of 2019 to save the card. Dana White just said they're working on an interim title fight - the only interim belt which makes sense is for the LHW belt.

    Whole thing is a massive farce.

    Colby vs Diaz or GSP

    Covington already has the belt (sort of).

    Jones is ducking Gus. This fight won't happen. I want to see it too, but it's a pipedream at this point. Jones has good reason to be scurred of Gus I suppose.

    I think that was their plan....problem is they were oblivious to the backlash it would cause and thus changed course once they realized how bad it looked.

    As a Jones hater, i can say, if Juicehead is going to fight anyone anytime soon, I am ok with Gus.

    Dana said “absolutely 100% not” going to be Jones on that card. Dana’s word is of course worthless and since he said that it almost guarantees the fight will happen.

    Can’t wait to see it.

    We still holding on to that angle.
    Jones is scared of Gus?

    No. This man is the only one with the Welterweight belt. They gave Colby a phoney belt simply to sell a card and then immediately took it right back.

    Short notice and Jon Jones stepped up like the champion he is. Isn't he fucking awesome?

    Exactly the words I expect to hear in a few days.

    They will announce Jones vs Gustafsson during or after the 229 ppv broadcast.
