Jon Jones Gave Up Light Heavyweight Title Because "Heavyweight Goals" Will Take Time

Former UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones recently vacated the title, which has paved the way for him to move up a weight class and compete at heavyweight.

Jones has now taken to Twitter to reveal exactly why he gave up the gold. The former king of 205 said it all had to do with goals he has set in the heavyweight division.

Although UFC President Dana White said Jones may get an immediate heavyweight title shot, it could be a while before that happens. White also stated that Francis Ngannou will get the next shot at UFC heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic.
