UFC President Dana White admitted what we all suspected. Former light heavyweight champion Jon Jones will be making his heavyweight debut against the champion of the division – Stipe Miocic or Francis Ngannou.
Miocic and Ngannou are set to face ac other in a rematch this upcoming March and whoever gets the W, will be defending the belt against “Bones”.
“Jon Jones is going to move to heavyweight. We’re going to have Stipe vs. Francis, and the winner of that will probably fight Jon Jones,”said Dana.
“The guy’s been the king of the light heavyweight division forever. I think he thinks it’s time to move up to heavyweight. He knows his body, he knows his abilities, he knows better than anybody else does. But it’s impressive. Let me tell you, who wants to fight Francis Ngannou? The answer is nobody, okay? Nobody wants to fight that guy. But Jon Jones does. Pretty impressive,” finished Dana.
