The light heavyweight contender says the next shot at the UFC Light Heavyweight Title should go to him.
“I beat the number four [ranked light heavyweight] and number three is fighting for the title,” Santos said at the UFC Prague post-fight press conference (via MMA Fighting). “I get the next title shot.”
Santos seemingly wants to fight Jones for the gold, so he can shock the world and pull a major upset.
“I know if I fight Jon Jones, he’s going to be the favorite,” Santos said. “But I’ve been shocking the world and I’m going to shock it again. All I want is my opportunity.”
A victorious Santos is tied at #6 in the UFC Light Heavyweight Division rankings and there is only two fighters ahead of him that hasn’t had a shot at the gold yet, which is Corey Anderson, who is tied with Santos in the #6 spot and Blachowicz, whom Santos just defeated.
