Stop playing champ! Jon Jones open to catchweight bout before move to heavyweight

John Jones competing at heavy weight is the Sasquatch of mixed martial arts. You catch a glimpse of it and then it’s gone.

Light heavyweight champion Jon Jones has toyed with making the jump to heavyweight every time he cleans out the division. He is at it again and even went so far as to add a caveat. Jones stated that he would like to have a catchweight bout of 220 pounds to help him prepare for what might be a permanent move.

Up until now I think most of us assumed he was just trolling Daniel Cormier making a threat that he would move up and beat Daniel at heavyweight like he had done twice at light heavyweight. This is one of those situations that I think we will all believe when we actually see it happening.

There is a guy named Francis Ngannou looking for someone to throw down with.
