Jones Continues To Hype Heavyweight Future
Jon Jones is the UFC light heavyweight champion but seems to not care about fighting Dominick Reyes, the man who is potentially next in line for a title shot.
Instead, Jones took to Twitter on Tuesday night to claim a fight against heavyweight challenger Francis Ngannou is “inevitable.”
“Really not sure when I’ll be fighting next,” Jones wrote. “Feel like I have nothing to gain by beating Dominick. I’ve actually felt that way about my last two opponents. I want a super fight.
“Had a chip on my shoulder against [Alexander Gustafsson]. Fighting [Anthony] Smith, [Thiago] Santos, Dominick [Reyes]? I’m having a hard time event talking s**t to this last dude. They all say the same lame s**t. I want a fight to be excited about.”
After being pushed in a split decision win over Thiago Santos in July, Jones does not think highly of the current crop of 205’ers which includes Reyes, Corey Anderson, Johnny Walker, and previous opponent Anthony Smith.
“Where did all the big names in the light heavyweight division go?” Jones asked his fans on Twitter.
“Sometimes I think about sitting out and just training for the next two years, then coming back and challenge the light heavyweight who’s been the most dominant. Wouldn’t that be wild?”
If Jones decides to do that, one option could be his move to heavyweight, and the one man he feels that he HAS to fight, and it’s not Daniel Cormier.
“I feel like that fight is inevitable,” Jones said of a fight with Ngannou, who awaits the winner of a Stipe Miocic and Cormier rematch.
