Jon Jones Interested In Superfight Against Cain Velasquez

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.”

Is this a fight that interests you?

  • Bri Ivison

    easy win for cain

  • Jody Ingram

    Cain would literally murder Jones.

  • Lee Feltner

    I don’t think it’ll be as lop sided as y’all think

  • Patrick Ingwersen

    Cain would kill him

  • Dean Stone

    Gus put a pretty good beating on him imagine what Cain would do, did he not see what Cain did to jds?

  • UnderBoss Preston Wilson

    why is he ducking glover if he thinks he can beat a heavyweight champ?

  • Levi Gillingham

    jones would put up a hell of a fight with cain.

  • Josh Wright


  • Japheth Hester

    it would be nice but he needs to worry about Texiera and Gustafson first

  • Sean Thomas

    I’m going with the multi-dimensional fighter that has not been knocked out before …

  • jason kincaid

    if jones can use his reach to keep cain away he has a chance. remember cain doesnt have the chin that jones has. most of you dont know shit apparently about fighting. cain got knocked out by jds. jone took some big shots against the mauler and was still standing and i hate jones but know it wld be better fight then what u fucks think it would.

  • Vladimir Alcaraz Osten

    I think JDS is an awesome fighter and cain beat the shit out of him jones doesn’t have a chance

  • Ethan Singer

    bones will be destroyed. terrible matchup, and im a big jones fan. jones spoke previously about how cain wouldn’t just lay back and play around with him, and would take the fight right into his face. and thats how i see it, dirty boxing and being mushed against the cage, and cain would smoke him. howabout the ufc just creat a 206-235 weight class and then we can have an exciting new weight class for these fighters instead of adding 125/135 etc

  • Angel Hubz Lara

    Cain baby.. Norther Cali fighter.. Mexican pride boiiii..

  • Andy Furlong

    Cains going to flatten him lol

  • Yandro Portal

    Jones doesnt stand a chance against cain

  • Josh Wright

    jones should fight in heavyweight div. but he wont he would get his head taken off

  • Kris Cabrera

    lol you idiots, jones has a solid jaw the guy is 100% nigga, cain would probably out wrestle this guy and tko him or something but if jones took maybe a year or 2 off he can create the solid muscle and get a good technique, the guy can easily be a heavyweight fighter

  • Jacob Lumbreras

    I like the match up, mainly to see Jones challenged and possibly KO’d. Thing is he still has a few guys in his division that he should worry about, mainly Gustafson. Anybody saying he’s ducking Teixiera is wrong, Gustafson earned his spot and should get another crack at Jones before Teixiera. I do think Jones would more than hold his own in the heavyweight division, but Cain is at another level. I love the fact that’s he’s willing to go up a division, most fighters go down a division. I wish more fighters would step up in divisions, especially the big weight cutters.

  • Ryan Barnhart

    ya, this is dumb. Its like the GSP v. Anderson Silva rumors…GSP is much smaller and not as strong at Anderson, just the same as Jones is much smaller and not even close to as strong as Cain. Cain would just smother him

  • Jeremy Curd

    Cain will beat jones for sure

  • Brad Dunn

    lol, he’s running from Gustafsson and Texeria and thinks he can beat Velasquez? Can’t wait to see this egotistical douche get knocked the fuck out.

  • Kevin Mcclelland

    Cain woukd ko him with ease.

  • Troy AN Erin Goodsell

    Wow ur crazy for even thinking its going to happen.

  • Jordan Thacker

    Velasquez would have the coward for dinner…. fuck Jones

  • Javier Mena

    oh man this guy is really confident, thinking about fighting against Cain Velasquez” are you kidding me!!!
    first please ask for a chance against the clown Silva” I’ll be so happy watching the fight….

  • Javier Mena

    first please ask for a chance against the clown Silva” I’ll be so happy watching the fight…

  • Kerry Maxwell

    Ducking Glover? Jones asked for that fight you weekend warrior. I don’t think Jones has a chance against Cain at the moment, buf he can be the future GOAT at heavyweight. Yeah, you read that right!

  • Nikolaj FS

    This would be great

  • Jose Medrano

    One hell of a fight….Bring that fight to Houston,Tx!!!….

  • Jeremy Humes

    Scared of Texiera…damn sure don’t want any part of Cain…velasquez would be a retirement fight for ole Bones

  • Steve Matlock

    Cain by tko. He is bigger and has better wrestling. He made Brock leaner look like a rag doll in wrestling for gods sake

  • Michael Paton

    James Conboy

  • Christopher Lavarias

    Never. Going. To. Happen.

  • Robert Espinoza

    Jones would get hammered for 5 rd’s as did JDS, and then NSAC’S inept judges would award Jones the split-decision victory ala (GSP v Hendricks) Cain Velasquez would win this fight all day, ever day!

  • LeRoy Ferch

    Jones would get wrecked, period.

  • Adam Provens

    Cain would destroy Jones.

  • Richie Terfinko

    im tired of his brown pride bullshit its time for a real champion

  • Owen Davies

    Wow we just saw him against one guy his size, and he shouldn’t have won that fight, couldn’t even make it out of the ring on his own. Rousey, another ducker, even said she would make Cain tap out. Even Junior was very confident going into that third fight, but then you could see him not so confident when he was in the ring before the fight started. A lot of people are interested in fighting Cain for some reason, until the night of the fight

  • Danny Finnson

    Why do you guys say he’s running away from Gustafsson and Texeria and then he just challenge the toughest guy on the planet lol it took a lot of hart to pull his last fight and got my respect .. I say he cleans out Texeria and proves he cleaned out the light HW division and gets that super fight next summer

  • Brando Bacunador

    Wtf? He will surely sleep his ass on octagon

  • Jose Martinez

    Dont forget u gotta go through cains homie DC

  • Brad Sprouse

    Cain will destroy danas golden boy

    Valequez Vs Jones would be an intriguing matchup in the Heavyweight Division. The size and reach advantage will go to Jones. Both have incredible Cardio although the advantage will go to Cain whose Cardio can be described best as superhuman. Both have a wrestling background but again I would Cain the advantage. The successor of this fight will be down to implementation of a effective game plan. Cain will struggle with Jones reach and striking, which is improving on a daily basis. However Jones will have to survive the storm Cain brings in all rounds and throughout. Cain has great boxing against the cage and both have vicious ground and pound. This is a very even matchup with two of the most technical elite fighters within the UFC. They both have the same strengths, which are well rounded martial artists with no real weakness. I would watch this fight with a great deal of interest and only one can be crowned the best mixed martial artist in the world. Jon Jones as a fan of MMA we welcome and embrace your move to the Heavyweight Division.

  • Danny Ortega

    He’s faster than cain but Cain is way too strong knockout first round

  • Noel Resto

    It’ll be nice to watch!

  • Edgar

    Caine will beat the bones out of Jones!
