Jones: 'No interest' in fighting Cain Velasquez
During a media conference call ahead of this weekend's UFC 172: Jones vs. Teixeira, UFC light heavyweight Jon Jones said said he was no longer entertaining the idea of a superfight with UFC heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez.
Jones had previously described a move to heavyweight as being inevitable, citing 2014 as the year.
"I have no interest at this point," said Jones as transcribed by Bleacher Report. "Thereís a lot of talent to test myself against."
That talent includes Teixeira, Alexander Gustafsson who fights the winner Saturday, Olympian Daniel Cormier, and Phil Davis.
"People are interested in rematch [with Gustafsson]," said Jones. "Phil Davis said heís going to crumble me like a cookie. Thereís a lot of challenges, and Iím ready to meet them."
