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.
