Jon Jones NYC radio appearance (Getty Images)After his dominant win at UFC 140, Jon Jones talked about taking a break from fighting and treating his parents to a vacation.
Jones' inactivity lasted just three weeks before he began to get the itch again.
"[Jones] called about four days ago and said 'okay let's go, I'm done with vacation.'" UFC president Dana White said on "The MMA Insiders" on ESPN1100/98.9 FM in Las Vegas (12:37 mark). "He said he wanted to take all this time off and then they were calling me four days ago saying he wants to fight as soon as possible. He's ready to go."

A decision on Jones' next fight will have to wait until after UFC on Fox 2 on Jan. 28.Read More »from Jon Jones tells the UFC he’s ready to fight ASAP
