"I don't know if Jones is going to fight Bader," White said. "We tried to put that fight together, but Bader has some stuff going on. Jon Jones might be fighting somebody else, I don't know how that's going to go."
However, MMA Fighting spoke to Jones' agent Malki Kawa, who said that he had already been sent a bout agreement for the Feb. 5 fight and had even talked about the fight to UFC officials as recently as Friday in London. Kawa said Jones is expected to sign the agreement to fight Bader in the coming days.
UFC officials also confirmed Kawa's statement, saying that the fight is still scheduled for the Super Bowl weekend show.
The original plan was to have Jones-Bader at UFC 125 on Jan. 1, but Bader asked to have the fight pushed back due to it being scheduled to close to his upcoming wedding.
As of right now, though, according to the parties involved, one of the most interesting light heavyweight clashes of 2011 appears to be still on.
