Jon Jones: I would definitely take a "right fight" at HeavyweightPosted on January 10, 2011, 05:43 AM by Anton Gurevich
“I kind of like how Randy (Couture) has done it all throughout his MMA career. With the right fight, I would definitely take a fight at heavyweight, but my dreams and my goals are all at the light heavyweight division, and I don’t want anything to get twisted saying I want to fight Cain (Velasquez) or any of the top heavyweights. If there was a cool fight stylistically for me at heavyweight, I’d give something to the fans and fight at a bigger weight.” - full interview at MMAWeekly.com
