Jones looking to pass Ortiz defense record then superfights, heavyweights

It looks like Jon Jones may have some unfinished business left in the light heavyweight division.

The current UFC champ, seemingly looking right past Saturday’s challenger, Chael Sonnen, said he wanted to leave his name in the division’s record books before venturing into the murky waters of super fights and heavyweights.

During a media conference call for UFC 159, Jones gave his thoughts on the rest of 2013.

“This fight with Chael, it ties me with Tito Ortiz (for most UFC light heavyweight title defenses).One thing I’ve been contemplating is first tying Tito Ortiz, and then establishing that record of the most (light heavyweight title defense) wins in my next fight, maybe in November, and after that fight in November, entertaining superfights and heavyweight fights.”

A win over Sonnen would make it five title defenses for Jones, who is 17-1. Jones has been mentioned as the perfect foil to UFC middleweight Anderson Silva. He offered no further comment when asked by a reporter if Silva would be his first targeted superfight.

“I said what I said.”

        I would do it, but I believe he is an old man and I am a beast. I am not into elderly abuse. Plus, I believe he has changed his name again! Of course, maybe you mean on this forum??!! Then, in that case, set it up!! Talk to my manager and we’ll sign this deal.

    I hope he kicks his ass but at the same time I hope he doesn’t overlook him.

    I hope the fight with Silva happens….I personally think Jones would rag doll him around the ring…I can’t ever imagine him beating a Cain or JDS though
