UFC Legend Jon Jones Has ‘Got The Right Attitude’ To Make It In WWE

Kofi Kingston has thrown his full backing behind UFC legend Jon Jones being a major success in WWE.

Speaking to TMZ, the WWE champion said that Jones, 31, has everything that it takes to make a crossover a reality.

"He's one of the greatest of all time, man!" the 37-year-old wrestler said.

"He's definitely got the height, he's got the skill. From what I see he's got the right attitude.

"I think a lot of people would love to see Jon Jones in there.

"That crossover is always so cool to see, how many people are fans of WWE, to wanna come in and play a character or have a match in some shape or form.

"Floyd Mayweather is another and that's the appeal the WWE has."

Kingston, who won the WWE Championship at WrestleMania 35 in April, is performing on the SmackDown brand as part of The New Day along with Big E and Xavier Woods.

And the WWE champ hilariously said that he would want to see if 'Bones' could become an honorary member of The New Day.

"We'll have to see what his hips look like if we want to put him in the New Day!" he said.

WWE fans would be open to the idea of Jones appearing in the WWE, especially for his heated rivalry with Brock Lesnar.

The UFC light heavyweight champion called out Lesnar, 41, after his victory over Daniel Cormier at UFC 214 in 2017, which would later be overturned as a no contest.

There were even rumours at the time that Jones could have made an appearance at WWE's SummerSlam PPV in 2017.

Jones successfully defended his championship against Thiago Santos at UFC 239 thanks to a split decision victory in his favour.

Should WWE try and negotiate some kind of deal with Jones?
