Jon Jones: Weidman’s Name Not Big Enough For Super Fight, Velasquez Though…

“A lot of people are starting to mention Chris Weidman’s name and I think in order for it to be a ‘super fight,’ Chris Weidman needs to get his name a little bit bigger and prove himself against some other world champions. That being said, I think Cain Velasdquez would be the only guy that would be considered a ‘super fight.'”

Apparently taking out the pound-for-pound king, Anderson Silva, (twice) isn’t enough to impress UFC light-heavyweight champion, Jon Jones.

When asked of super fights by AXS TV, the champ said Weidman’s not on his level.

  1. team backfist says:

    The only Jones fight I care about is the Gustaffson rematch.

  2. Gargoyle Wrestling says:

    I agree. Right now Cain is the only big fight. Once Weidman sends Belfort to the WWE and beats a few others, he’ll be in the mix. Unfortunately, Gustaffson gave his best and it wasn’t good enough. He won’t get better, Jones will simply improve and beat him early. Gustaffson needs to fight his way back to Jones.

    • seminalcacti says:

      Gustafsson won that fight and i’m not the only one who thinks so. Fight his way back? Jones is ducking him and not offering a rematch because he knows how close that fight was.

      • evan says:

        I agree with seminalcacti. Gustafsson got robbed big time. He had 3 out of the 5 rounds and should be wearing that belt. I guess the OP thought Hendricks lost to GSP as well.

        • Me the Unknown says:

          No way did Gustafsson lose that fight. He won rounds 1-3 easily. They had to pull Jones out in a stretcher. He is obviously ducking the rematch. Gus is the true champ!

  3. STFUUIgnants says:

    I get it, but other than JDS who has Cain fought, who is even good enuff to challege him or JDS? The only guy that could beat him, Cormier, refuses to fight him.

  4. Terrance says:

    Don’t count Golver out yall he might not win but he’s dangerous

  5. gangsterlean says:

    Chapel beat Jones easy

  6. Andrew Brown says:

    that logic makes no sense Cain hasn’t been Champ all that long he defended once and got KO’d he just got it back and went right into fucking surgery !! By the logic you agree in what Jones says Cain isn’t worthy either ! You guys are all fucking marks
