UFC light heavyweight champion provided a quick interview for “Inside MMA” which aired on AXS TV earlier this week. Jones was asked about having a super-fight with UFC middleweight champion Chris Weidman, but Jones indicated that Weidman didn’t have a big enough following for that fight to be considered a super-fight. In fact, the only fight he would consider to be a super-fight would have to be against UFC heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez. Check the video below:
Jones is set to defend his UFC title against Glover Teixeira at UFC 172 in March, and will likely rematch Alexander Gustafsson afterwards such both fighters win their upcoming bouts. Cain Velasquez will likely be out of the majority of 2014 with a shoulder injury/surgery, and will take on the winner of the upcoming Travis Browne/Fabricio Werdum fight that will take place at UFC on FOX 11.
Chris Weidman is set to take on Vitor Belfort in his next outing at UFC 173. Which fight would you rather see? Jones vs. Weidman or Jones vs. Velasquez?
