Jones injured, out until April, next defense is against Sonnen

The Los Angeles Times today reported, quoting Dana White, that Jon Jones and Chael Sonnen would coach season 17 of The Ultimate Fighter in what is clearly an attempt to turn around the fortunes of the show.

In addition, Jones will defend his light heavyweight title against Sonnen on April 27, 2013.  No venue has been announced for the event.

White said Jones would not fight until then because he needs extensive physical therapy due to elbow injuries suffered from an armbar early in his Sept. 22 title defense against Vitor Belfort.

Sonnen has been pulled from his Dec. 29 fight with Forrest Griffin, since a loss would risk the big picture.
