JDS: I'm the Baddest Man on the Planet, and I'd fight Jones to prove itPosted on November 1, 2012, 08:07 PM by Anton Gurevich
"People like to imagine a lot of things. I think Jon Jones is an amazing fighter. He is really good, he is so confident and I like him a lot. He is very nice with me and I'm nice with him. But, I don't care about the other belts.
I got the heavyweight belt, you know. There is just one baddest man on the planet and I think I am this guy now. So, if he moves up to the heavyweight division, I will think about the fight. If the UFC put him in front of me to challenge me, were going to fight and I will give my best." - UFC Tonight, via MMAMania.com
It looks like more and more UFC Heavyweights are ready to welcome Jon Jones to the division. This time it's no other than the reigning UFC Heavyweight champion Junior dos Santos, who admitted that he would be more than happy to test his skills against Jones.
Dos Santos labeled himself as "The Baddest Man on the Planet". Brazilian heavy-hitter is currently on a 9-fight win streak in the UFC, with one title defense (against Frank Mir). Despite his young age, Jon Jones is slightly ahead of dos Santos when it comes to statistics. Bones has 11 victories inside the Octagon, with four title defenses.
Jon Jones recently stated that he's definitely going up to Heavyweight, most likely towards the end of 2013. Alistair Overeem has already expressed his desire to welcome Jones to the division, while other top UFC Heavyweights have also entertained the idea of fighting one of the best pound-for-pound fighters in MMA today. At 6ft 4, Jones taller than Cain Velasquez and Frank Mir, while his legendary reach is as long as the one of a 7ft "Skyscraper" Stefan Struve.
