Jon Jones OSP Fight Is Huge Risk ... Says Joe Rogan

EXCLUSIVE

If Jon Jones loses his comeback fight against Ovince Saint Preux, he could lose more than just his pride ... he might lose his shot to get his title back ... so says Joe Rogan

The UFC's chief color commentator was at LAX when we asked how he felt about Jones accepting a fight with a replacement for Daniel Cormier at UFC 197 on April 23rd ... after D.C. backed out with an injury

"I was hoping it was going to be Rumble Johnson," Rogan said ... "That coulda been interesting."

So, why is the OSP fight such a huge risk for Jon? 

"If [Jon] loses, he probably loses that shot [at the title] I would imagine."

"Hey, I dont know," Rogan said ... "I don't know how that works but if [the fight is in] the same weight class and OSP beats him, it only makes sense that OSP would be the next guy in line for his shot at the title."
