Fabricio Werdum Would Like To Welcome Jon Jones To The Heavyweight Division | UFC NEWS

“I would love to make a fight with Jon Jones, but he has to see that heavyweight is something else. Of course he is champion, for it has size and all the qualities, but it would be another fight. I’d love to give these to welcome him (laughs).”

“There was no drop [of arm pressure] at all. This business of letting go of the arm that time does not exist. I was seated and has no drop [of arm pressure] because it popped. I pluck the arm of Jon Jones out and bring to Brazil (laughs).”

In an interview with, top heavyweight, Fabricio Werdum says he wouldn’t mind welcoming Jon Jones to the UFC’s heavyweight division.

The UFC light-heavyweight champion has talked many times about testing the waters in the division above him, but the UFC brass has always been against such a move so early in his career.

Would Werdum be a good welcome to the “Big” leagues match up for Jones?

    I think werdum was critiquing vitors armbar against jbj, but he couldnt finish magalhaes in the adcc. He had way better positioning than vitor and still couldnt pull it off.

    • Michael says:

      Dude how can you compare jonaes to magalhaes thats incomparible. Its mma but werdum is on another level as far as bjj is concerned than jones. Vinnys bjj is top notch I train with guys that would submit jones easy in an adcc type match your comment is retarted

    • Not You says:

      JBJ isn’t Vinny. Vinny has won ADCC multiple times. It’s not easy, even for a high level BJJ player, to sub someone so skilled.

  2. 757 says:

    Good point. I do think he is a serious threat with the BJJ and who knows that might be how JBJ gets beat, It would be interesting,

  3. squid says:

    werdum would destroy jones. jones dont want it. ufc is protecting jones. they know hed get smashed when he finally faces opponents of his size.

  4. Michael says:

    vitor would get absolutely smoked by vinny In a bjj type match pure bjj is far different than mma you need to treat them as two seperate sports entirely

  5. 123 says:

    You all talk like you’re experts, Shut the fuck up.

  6. Pancho says:

    Shut the fuck up with the Jones is a HW shit.

  7. Nunya says:

    Jones has much more to improve with his bjj. Regardless, he is the Champ. Its easy to talk shit when you see a weakness in a fighters attributes. Yes Werdum has serious bjj, & yes he has won a lot of titles in bjj & if they were to match up now, would not be good for Jones. Give the kid more time. He is a young Champ that has a win over everyone in his division except for Henderson. Heavyweights talkin shit, but I feel if you’re not holding the title. You really don’t have much to say.
