Current middleweight champion Chris Weidman finally has his next fight set to go, as the UFC confirmed earlier this week that Weidman would defend his title for the fourth time against No. 1-contender Luke Rockhold in the co-main event of UFC 194.

Weidman, despite many doubters, has proved his championship worth by finishing all-time great Anderson Silva twice, albeit with some controversy, taking a five-round decision over Lyoto Machida, as well as by finishing Vitor Belfort.

The New York native still has a ton of work left for him at 185-pounds, including his bout with Rockhold, as well as potential bouts with surging contenders Ronald “Jacare” Souza, and Yoel Romero just to name a few.

However, that doesn’t mean that the champion plans to spend his whole career as a middleweight. Weidman took over the official twitter of the New York Mets last night and answered fan questions, one of which talked about a potential move to 205-pounds.

Weidman said that he wants to fight the best, and in a few years we may see him at light heavyweight:

Not only does Weidman want to move up a weight class, but he also wants to fight not only the greatest light heavyweight of all-time, but one of the greatest fighters of all-time in now former champion Jon “Bones” Jones. Jones is the most dominant 205-pounder of all-time, but his legal troubles have recently forced the UFC to strip him of his long-held title, and suspend him indefinitely. If he can sort out his problems however, Weidman would like a piece of him:

The Serra-Long product is obviously quite a large middleweight, but at the same time, Jones is a very large, and lengthy light heavyweight. If Weidman can clear out the 185-pound division, which will definitely not be easy, does he stand a chance against “Bones”?
