UFC 159: What's Next for Jon Jones After Beating Chael Sonnen?

Jeremy Botter@jeremybotterMMA Senior WriterApril 28, 2013

NEWARK, N.J. — Jon Jones defeated Chael Sonnen as expected in the main event of UFC 159. What's next for the light heavyweight champion?

That's the question I try to answer as I report live from the Prudential Center shortly after the finish of the main event. It's not an easy answer, either. Jones will be out for quite some time with a compound toe fracture, and there's no telling who will earn a title shot in the meantime. 

But I think I've got an idea of who should challenge Jones next. You'll have to watch the video to find out, though.

Check out the video above, and let me know what you think in the comments below.
