Jon Jones: "It would be cool to be considered the heavyweight champion of the world"

I think personally it would be cool to be considered a Heavyweight champion of the world. I think it doesn't get much better than that. But I'm totally fine with being the Light Heavyweight champion. I'm 23 and have lots of years to mature as an athlete and in my physique. I'm also getting smarter with the decisions I make. I have a really good nutritionist that's been helping me. Her name's Kelly Keegan. She's designing all my diets and all the fitness things I do. The type of workouts that I'm doing. She gives my girl friend consistent, new recipes and tricks on what can make me perform and look my best. That's making it a lot easier for me. My last two fights, the Bader fight and the Shogun fight, I felt extremely powerful. Against Shogun I competed at weigh-in, I was about 217 and had 5.25% body fat which is extremely low so yeah, everything is working out and I'm making it easier on myself.
Such a greed, greedy man.

Would definitely love to see him fight guys like Velasquez, JDS, Mir and such.

Thanks to limba for this AWESOME sig

He's such a thin dude I cant imagine him stopping a takedown from a guy like Lesnar or Velasquez but apparently he walks around as high as 230 and he continuously proves he has some unorthodox type of strength where he can man handle a bull like Ryan Bader so who the hell knows. Jon Jones has yet to fail to impress me in any of his fights and if he actually packed on some pounds... that could be scary.


But for now he has the job at clearing out the 205 lb division before he should consider moving up.

With all due respect, who the hell do you have beating him right now? Id say Phil Davis has a SMALL chance but he's not as developed as Jon Jones yet (which sounds insane to say considering bones is f*ucking 23 haha)

He definitely has the frame to add bulk. If he manages to get past all immediate threats @ 205 (Machida, Evans, Rampage) it might be time.

After JDS/Cain works itself out and the Strikeforce GP winner gets a shot I predict there won't be a credible opponent for the HW title. That's where Bones will come in.

OK lots of speculation in this post, but I see it going down like that.

Funny, when Lyoto Machida had just won the belt but hadn't defended yet, he said the same thing. I believe it was "After 5 title defense I want to fight Brock Lesnar."
