UFC light-heavyweight champion, Jon Jones hinted via his twitter today that his next opponent would be a younger one.
Jones could be referring to 26-year old fellow 205-pounder, Alexander Gustafsson who has been long rumored to be Jones’ next opponent. Gustafsson is only 5 months and 4 days older than Jones and both will be 26-years old come Jones’ alleged return later this year.
The last time Jones fought an opponent under the age of thirty was when he won the title against Mauricio Rua who was a mere 9 months shy of his 30th birthday.
The two have already been photographed mid-staredown at a local event in Russia earlier this year and the two have been featured in the EA Sports UFC video game demo fighting in the Octagon in animated form.
Now we wait to see who Jon Jones will see opposite him upon his estimated return later this year.
