Future UFC light heavyweight champions could do some charitable work courtesy of Jon Jones.
Former UFC light-heavyweight champion Jon Jones vacated the title on Monday ahead of a planned move to heavyweight. The long-time ruler of 205 is issuing a challenge to all future UFC light-heavyweight champions. Jones offered to donate $100,000 to charity if any future light heavyweight champion can break his title defense record.
Jones made the challenge through Twitter:
First light heavyweight to win six championships in a row I’ll pay $100,000 to whatever charity of their liking. I’ll be waiting— BONY (@JonnyBones) August 17, 2020
Was going to challenge a light heavyweight to beat my world championship record but we all know that’s probably not happening in this lifetime.— BONY (@JonnyBones) August 17, 2020
Seriously, I challenge you guys to go out there and be great too. It’s going to be awesome watching with that cheeseburger in my hand— BONY (@JonnyBones) August 17, 2020
UFC has not announced its plans for the vacant light heavyweight title; however, but a fight between Dominick Reyes and Jan Blachowicz, set for UFC 253, seems to be the frontrunner to crown a new light heavyweight champion.
