Jon Jones Interested In Superfight Against Cain Velasquez

47

Everyone loves super-fight talk right?

That’s exactly what Jon Jones discussed during a recent UFC Q&A session with fans as he dropped news that he plans to move to the heavyweight division within the next two years:

“I think that’s going to happen within the next two years – I’ll go up to heavyweight, permanently,” said Jones as transcribed by B/R. “But I am looking to take a superfight sooner or later, within the next year. So, yeah I’m excited for it. I’ve been really thinking about me and Cain Velasquez going at it. It would be huge for the sport. He’s definitely the toughest guy in that division, and he’s not that big, so I think it would a really entertaining fight. Don’t be surprised if you see that sooner or later.”
