Former UFC champion believes Jon Jones can go undefeated for 10 more fights

Former two-weight UFC champion and 2008 Olympic wrestling gold medalist Henry Cejudo believes the former UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones is far from done.

Cejudo, who retired from MMA in 2021, is now training and helping a lot of fighters, “Bones” being one of them.

Jones is upgrading his wrestling and grappling skills with “Triple C” and according to Cejudo, the newly heavyweight hitter is just beginning.

In a recent appearance on “The Schmozone Podcast,” Cejudo confirmed that Jones will be making his long-awaited UFC return this year. However, he also noted that “Bones” just need some extra time to pull himself together.

“You guys will see Jon Jones this year,” Cejudo declared. “He’s anxious to fight. He needed this time to get his mind right, to let his body recover, to enjoy his family. He needed all this. I wouldn’t be mad if he takes another year off, honestly because he’s accomplished so much.”

“He got to a point where he was so good that people really started to adapt to him,” he assessed. “And I talked to Jon I said, ‘Jon you have to bring that hungry monster again. You got to be come that technical savage as you once were, you have the ability to adjust. It’s not just kicks and things, we have to invest in things. We start to break down their foundation and we start to take people out again like [in] the beginning of your career [like] what you did to Lyoto Machida, Shogun [Rua], all these fighters’.”

Jones has not stopped an opponent since 2018. Atop that, he’s also in his mid-30s. Nevertheless, Cejudo is positive “Bones” could still go for and win 10 more fights before finally calling it a career.

“I think Jones can fight another 10 fights and retire undefeated,” Cejudo predicted. “I really do. I think Jon Jones literally has about 10 fights left, he thinks he probably has less but he’s a competitor. He’s a fighter. Jon’s going to be doing this for a minute.”

UFC president Dana White has previously admitted that Jones could possibly compete for the interim heavyweight title should Ngannou sits out for a long period of time.
