UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones has made it quite obvious that – in time – he will be competing in the UFC’s heavyweight division.
So, it should come as no surprise that “Bones” prefers a future super-fight with Cain Velasquez over Chris Weidman.
Both Velasquez and Weidman are also current UFC champions; Velasquez at heavyweight, Weidman at middleweight.
Hear Jones’ “call-out” of Velasquez in the video below, courtesy Inside MMA.
Jones and Velasquez are both former NJCAA national champions at Iowa Central. For Jones, he will face Glover Teixeira at UFC 172, while Velasquez is rehabbing from surgery.
