Werdum Calls For ‘Old-School’ MMA Rules Against Jones

Werdum

Following his win over Daniel Cormier at UFC 182, Jon Jones spoke about the possibility of moving up to heavyweight eventually.

The talks were nothing new, as Jones had previously said he was eyeing a move to heavyweight in the future, and that he would fight interim heavyweight champion Fabricio Werdum ‘every day, all day’.

Werdum didn’t take too kindly to that, and after issuing a warning to Jones post-UFC 182, continued his warning.

“He’s the one who started all this, saying he would fight me every day.”

“If you want to fight me every day, come to Kings MMA. We’ll spar every day, all day, with no time limit for a week, a month, until one quits. If you want to fight me every day, that’s how it’s going to work,” Werdum said. “When we have a visitor that talks too much trash, we do sparring sessions with no time limit, until someone quits. Old-school MMA.”

“But if you want to fight me, we can talk to the UFC and do this superfight,” he continued. “Heavyweight, catchweight, anything.”
