Jon Jones vs. Jake O'Brien booked for UFC 100

Fresh off a win over Stephan Bonnar in January, Jon Jones has signed to fight Jake O'Brien at UFC 100 on July 11 in Las Vegas, reports

Jones (8-0) debuted with the UFC last August at UFC 87 on three weeks notice and defeated IFL veteran Andre Gusmao via unanimous decision. The 21-year-old from Rochester, New York turned heads again at UFC 94 with a convincing unanimous decision against the experienced Bonnar.

O'Brien (11-2) dropped down to light-heavyweight at UFC 94 and will continue fighting that weight class. He won his first three fights in the UFC as a heavyweight -- including a victory over Heath Herring -- but followed with losses to Andrei Arlovski and Cain Velasquez, leading to the weight cut. O'Brien won UFC 94 against Christian Wellisch.
