The opponent is Alexander "The Mauler" Gustaffson. The Swedish fighter is ranked number two in the world behind Jones in their weight class.
It will be the first battle between Jones (18-1) and Gustafsson (15-1).
For those wondering about the compound fracture Jones suffered in his toe when he defeated Chael Sonnen in April, have no fear. Eva asked the Champ about it on Twitter and here's what he had to say:
@JonnyBones: "There's a little concern. I'm going to start slow and work into intense training. It's healing great tho, I'm kind of like the Wolverine."
Jones also sent a shout out to the 607.
