Malki Kawa, the manager for UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones, feels like his fighter has defeated all of the top challengers at 205 pounds in the UFC. Does that mean Jones has cleaned out the division? Not at all, according to Kawa.
Jones has successfully defended his title four times - all of which have come against former UFC champions. For now, though, "Bones" remains without a fifth challenger to his reign.
"Jon actually asked me (recently), he said, 'Who's next?' and I was like, 'You know what, I really don't have the answer either. I don't know,'" said Kawa, in a recent interview with MMAWeekly.com. "It's not frustrating. You know what it is? When you fight that much, that frequent...I just think there are going to be some new contenders coming up. There's going to be a little gap right now and then you'll see three or four guys be in line."
Jones has mentioned wanting to fight Dan Henderson after having their title fight cancelled due to an injury to Henderson. There is also the Chael Sonnen card, along with the likes of rising prospects Alexander Gustafsson, Glover Teixeira and others.
