At last night's post fight press press conference following UFC on FOX 18, Sholler said that the UFC are going to announce the rematch between long time pound for pound king Jon Jones and current light heavyweight Champion Daniel Cormier. “We expect to have an announcement (regarding Cormier vs. Jones II) in the next couple of days here” said Sholler when asked if the fight would take place in April as reports suggested. Anthony Johnson, who stopped Ryan Bader in the first round last night stated that he would wait for that fight, "I'll definitely wait for that fight, it's the biggest fight of my career.", but wouldn't turn down another if offered to him, "I'd take another fight in between, that's a paycheck for me." The UFC are set to announce the date for the rematch between Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier this week and it is looking more and more likely that the fight will take place at UFC 197 in Anaheim. Nothing is confirmed yet, though.
