August 9, 2010 All MMA News, UFC  Comments 

It looks likely that exciting light heavyweight star on the rise, Jon Jones will take on former champion, Forrest Griffin at UFC 123 on November 20th in Chicago, Illinois.

A source close to the situation revealed the news to earlier today during a brief telephone conversation. At least one fighter has verbally agreed to the bout, meaning paperwork could be issued shortly.

Jones is coming off another impressive first round win, controlling Vladimir Matyushenko on the ground before pounding him out. He also holds notable wins over Stephan Bonnar, Jake O’Brien and Brandon Vera.

As for Griffin, he’s coming off a split decision win over Tito Ortiz last November. Prior to that he’d lost back-to-back fights to Rashad Evans and Anderson Silva inside the octagon. Stay tuned to MMABay for more on this as we get it.
