Now Jones, in UFC-s-anderson-silva" target="_blank">an interview with boxingnewsonline.com's John Dennen, says he wants a tune up fight with cruiserweight Bobby Gunn as a warm-up for "The Spider."
"If he beats Weidman, then weíll do a boxing match, which is what he wants to do," said Jones. "The Gunn fight would give me a tune-up so Iím ready for the fight in case he beats Weidman. So if he beats Weidman, Iíve got to be ready for it because heís going to be coming for me and I want to be ready when he comes for me. I want to give him what he wants."
"He said that's his lifelong dream. We've got to make that happen. He's a great striker and a great defender."
Jones is on a two-fight win streak, but is in the twilight of his career, winning just seven of his last 13 fights. Three of the losses were by knockout.
