Now that Jon Jones has scored a dominant, decision victory over Glover Teixeira last night at UFC 172, UFC President Dana White has confirmed that the light-heavyweight champ will rematch Alexander Gustafsson next.

That’s in keeping with the initial plan the promotion laid out several months back. In March, Gustafsson did his part to lock up another title shot, by stopping Jimi Manuwa. While Jones-Gustafsson II is a go, the date and location has yet to be determined.

“I’m looking forward to him against Gustafsson,” White relayed to UFC FOX Sports 1 after last night’s event. “If we did that fight in Europe it would be massive. I have no clue when it’ll happen.”

In September, Jones battled his way to a decision win over Gustafsson, in what was one of the UFC’s greatest title fights to date.
