Jon Jones Won’t Rush His Heavyweight Debut

Jon Jones, the former UFC champion and regarded as one of the best pound-for-pound fighters on the roster, has reiterated that he won’t be seen in action for a while regardless of what the fans demand from him. On Twitter, Jones has once again made it clear that he is not eyeing a heavyweight debut anytime soon. He was of the view that people are unaware of the massive preparation that he has to undergo for ditching the light-heavyweight division for the heavyweight one.

This is not the first time Jon Jones has revealed that he needs to put in more work in his training until he is in the groove to take on reigning heavyweight champion Francis Ngannou and other heavyweights in the division.

Weeks after the talks for his bout against the Predator seemingly failed, the 33-year-old said he would be next seen in action in 2022.

Jones had previously revealed that the UFC was eyeing an $8 million to $10 million pay for him, but he felt like this was less than what he deserved. Days later, former UFC champ and commentator, Daniel Cormier, also jumped on the bandwagon.

He felt that Jones should be okay with receiving $10 million for the title fight, but thinking that he would ever be scared to take on Francis Ngannou is false.
