UFC welterweight contender and fan favorite Matt “The Immortal” Brown believes that former UFC light heavyweight champion Jon “Bones” Jones is pretty much untouchable inside the UFC’s octagon.
The UFC’s #5 ranked welterweight (Brown) was recently on the GreatMMADebate podcast where he discussed the idea of Jon Jones becoming the UFC’s heavyweight champion, his words:
“I wouldn’t give anybody a chance against Jones honestly,” Brown said on the latest podcast. “Even at heavyweight, I think Jones would probably win the heavyweight title if he wanted. He’d probably have to actually train and build his body for heavyweight and be properly prepared, etc. But yeah, you know.”
Jon Jones (21-1 MMA) is currently on an indefinite suspension from the UFC, this pending a legal case that could see him face jail time.
The former UFC champion was involved in a hit-and-run accident in April that led to his suspension from the promotion.
Prior to his legal troubles, “Bones” was coming off a dominant decision victory over rival Daniel Cormier, which marked the 28-year-olds eighth-straight title defense.
Do you agree with Brown? Could Jon Jones move up to heavyweight and take the title with relative ease? Sound off Penn Nation!
