"Reports I've heard is that it was better than we thought," said White, in an interview with MMAjunkie.com. "Not that good (that he could compete in December), but we'll see. I don't know all the details yet, but it's nothing horrible - or I would've heard already."
Jones was issued an indefinite suspension by the Ontario Athletic Commission following the fight. However, he can be cleared of that by a medical doctor.
White added that "Bones" will see his own doctor first before the UFC brings him out for an exam, adding, "It doesn't seem like it's going to be that bad. Believe me, if it was going to be that (long), he'd be in some serious pain and we'd know. I don't think it's going to be that bad - which is amazing, considering that armbar."
