Jon Jones Says Heavyweight Move Could Come Later This Year

January 25, 2013 | Posted by Jeremy Thomas

Jon Jones recently discussed (via MMAjunkie) a potential move to heavyweight and more. Check out the highlights:

On when he may move weight classes: “I think heavyweight is going to come along around 2014 – maybe even late this year. Who knows. It’ll definitely be a fight for the fans.”

On a potential fight with Daniel Cormier needing to be at light heavyweight: “(Cormier) is going to have to come and get me. He talked all that trash – I’m going to make him cut that weight.”

On wanting to face Alistair Overeem: “I would love to face (Overeem). I would fight anybody, any time. I’m just a lot smaller than those guys (at heavyweight). I know that it would be a major challenge to fight one of those guys being the size I am right now.”

On his upcoming fight with Chael Sonnen: “Chael’s a great fighter. He’s been a WEC champion and a top contender for many years. I respect him a lot and I’m training really hard.”
