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 we’ll do a boxing match, which is what he wants to do," said Jones. "The Gunn fight would give me a tune-up so I’m ready for the fight in case he beats Weidman. So if he beats Weidman, I’ve got to be ready for it because he’s 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.
