Jon Jones Says He'd Move To Heavyweight To Beat Up James Toney

Hot off an impressive first round finish of Vladimir Matyushenko at UFC On Versus 2, Jon Jones was questioned post-fight about his brewing war of words against former boxing champ James Toney:

“It's funny. Someone asked me about the way I feel about James Toney and I just said that I think he's naive and ignorant by thinking he can stop Randy Couture's wrestling with a hand combination, I guess he took offense to that. He said he would slap me if he ever saw me at a UFC event. I'll let that guy prove his own ignorance. Obviously slapping me he could face some assault and battery charges. How about this, get by Randy Couture first and then call me out, and we can settle it inside the Octagon. I would move up to heavyweight to beat him up.”
