Dana White revises number 1 contender plans ahead of UFC on FOX

After Dana White was set on the Rua vs Vera getting the next shot at the champion, the UFC President changed his plans.

Yesterday, White announced that the winner of Machida vs Bader will also be considered for the number one contender spot for the Light Heavyweight championship.

After backlash from the fans on social media, White now has plans for whichever winner comes out looking most impressive to get the opportunity to face the 205 champion.

“When the fans speak, we listen. So whoever scores the best win, whoever gets the fans excited by going out there on Saturday and looking the most impressive, he will get the winner of Jones vs. Henderson,” White said.

“It is down to what these four guys do Saturday night in the Octagon. Winning isn’t enough, they’ve got to win impressively. Any one of these four fighters can take things into their own hands and make a title shot happen.”

All four men in the mix have faced and lost to the current champion.
