Jon Jones Discusses Eventual Move To The UFC’s Heavyweight Division | UFC NEWS


“I definitely have goals to compete at heavyweight and obviously go for the championship,” Jones said in the chat last Saturday evening. “But it’s a ways away. Right now I’m cutting weight more efficiently, trying to eat smarter and do things better and the weight cuts are getting easier so, heavyweight might be a ways away.”

“Fighting Cain would be a great honor in the future,” Jones said. “I’m here to fight the best guys and I would love to fight Cain in the future. Not because I don’t like him or anything I think he’s an awesome guy, but, you know, the competition. That’s why I’m here. ”

WWhen I move up to heavyweight I definitely won’t be trying to hang on to two belts at the same time,” he said. “I’ll be focused, you know, strictly on heavyweight.”

“When I compete at heavyweight I plan on weighing like 240 and I really won’t want to get much bigger than that.” Jones said in the chat. “I think speed and agility would give me an advantage being smaller than those guys, so.”

– UFC light-heavyweight champion, Jon Jones, took to his recent Metro PCS fan chat to discuss what could be in his future as a UFC heavyweight fighter.

  1. Anderson Fan says:

    Imagining Jon Jones with 40+ more pounds of muscle is pretty dam scary.. Might give the Reem a run for his money in looks xD

  2. Calvin says:

    I think Jones moving to HW is a way to avoid Anderson. Once he gets situated in HW, it would not seem right fir him to fight two weight classes down.
    If he really wants to fight the best, fight Silva then. Do it before he moves to HW and I give the man all the props in the world.
