Former UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones recently relinquished the title as he plans on making a move up a weight class to heavyweight. Two potential opponents he has in mind are UFC heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic and former UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar.
Miocic is expected to defend the title next in a rematch against Francis Ngannou, but Jones has taken to Twitter to explain why he should jump ahead of Ngannou and face Miocic next:
Stipe doesn’t want to fight Francis again because the first fight really wasn’t close— BONY (@JonnyBones) August 31, 2020
Looking at it from Stipe’s point of view, fighting Francis again is definitely more of a lose situation than a win.— BONY (@JonnyBones) August 31, 2020
Stipe asked for a new challenge, why not fight the light heavyweight goat? Besides we’re way closer in size. What’s more exciting than that?— BONY (@JonnyBones) August 31, 2020
By the time he heals up my body weight should be right where it needs to be. This fight lines up perfectly— BONY (@JonnyBones) August 31, 2020
Another person that Jones has called out on Twitter is the recent free agent and former UFC heavyweight champion in Lesnar:
Brock I’ll beatcho ass too— BONY (@JonnyBones) August 31, 2020
There has been no response yet from either Miocic or Lesnar after being called out by the former light heavyweight champion.
