Jones Jones vacated his light heavyweight title to pursue a move up to heavyweight and he has a few choices in mind.
Jones believes he’s a better opponent for Stipe Miocic than Francis Ngannou.
Jon took to Twitter to make his case and pitch his shot at the heavyweight title.
“Stipe doesn’t want to fight Francis again because the first fight really wasn’t close”
“Looking at it from Stipe’s point of view, fighting Francis again is definitely more of a lose situation than a win.”
“Stipe asked for a new challenge, why not fight the light heavyweight goat? Besides we’re way closer in size. What’s more exciting than that?”
“By the time he heals up my body weight should be right where it needs to be. This fight lines up perfectly”
“Stipe versus Francis is high risk low reward. Stipe versus myself actually makes a lot of sense for both of us. Now you actually have a super fight. Stipe loses the fight is gone”
Jones has been busy in the weight room lifting heavy weights and bulking up in preparation for his heavyweight debut.
Jones apparently heard the news of Brock Lesnar’s free agency and took a shot at the former UFC heavyweight champion.
“Brock I’ll beatcho ass too”
UFC President Dana White has said Ngannou will get the next title shot against Stipe.
Ngannou will not let Jones slip in and get the heavyweight title shot. He clapped back on Jones after Jones tweeted during Miocic vs. Cormier 3 and afterward wrote, “heavyweight world championships I will be seeing you real soon.”
The UFC has not announced a potential heavyweight super fight yet but several options remain open.
