Longtime Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) light heavyweight champion, Jon Jones, has been outplaying a possible heavyweight super fight to fight 265-pound Kingpin Steep Myosic for the past three years.
No need to be a dick, but either move up and do it or drop Yapin ‘about it.
Jones may be competing for the last time at 205 pounds, assuming his upcoming fight against top contender Dominique Reese, scheduled for the UFC 247 pay-per-view (PPV) main event in Houston, Texas, February 8.
Jones recently told reporters (via MMA Fighting) that “I was trying to fight a step moose.” “I thought it would probably happen but we have a Step-DC Button instead. But at that point I was so ready to go heavyweight and stick my hands with a few big guys. My versatility, I realize, is that most heavyweights don’t work, spinning, flying to their knees, that’s the thing. I feel really good. ”
The heavyweight title is up on the ice until the Miocic heavyweight rival, Daniel Carmiar, who is himself unable to finish his trilogy with a stranger to Jose. Determining the outcome of this fight can go a long way when (or if) the “bones” actually bring the trip north.
“Time is really going to be closer,” Jones continues. “I wouldn’t be surprised if that happens in 2020. I feel like I’ve cleared the department and I’m waiting and I’m embracing the new challenge. I’m not sitting in the title. I’m not hiding from anyone. I chose Dominic because he was mine. Appeared as the best of all the contestants and I’m just ready to take on the world ”
