    Exactly. Jones is under contract at the moment and should have to fight the #1 contender.

    Jones tweeted not that long ago

    "What contract?" as a reply to someone asking about how his contract negotiations are going.

    Didn't Dana say that Jon has 5 fights left on his contract?

    They might be extending it, as Lorenzo said, and the terms probably will get adjusted.

    UFC regularly offers contract extension early and often. Likely theu are offering Jones a paybump and extension to fight Gus.

    Lorenzo Sr. is such a pimp. His son is gonna run the game in a few years. Buddy just casually sitting in on executive meetings of a multi billion dollar company. Fertittas recognize it's all about keeping it in the family.

    Dana's son is not so impressive, but whatever though, he will still be richer than I ever will be no matter what he does in life.

    From the sounds of it JBJ wants a current hike in the current contract rather than an extension. HMMMMMMMMMM

    Lorenzo probably wants to extend Jones' contract if Jones wants better pay and PPV cut.

    Sounds about right to me.

    doubt Jones would want to extend his contract unless he gets the DC fight first
