Jon Jones Reacts To Alexander Gustafsson's Jump To UFC Heavyweight Division

Jon Jones Reacts To Alexander Gustafsson's Jump To UFC Heavyweight Division

Jon Jones has appeared to tease another showdown with Alexander Gustafsson following the Swede's move to the UFC heavyweight division.

Gustafsson makes his highly-anticipated UFC comeback tonight when he faces Fabricio Werdum at UFC Fight Island 4 on Yas Island.

The 33-year-old will be making his heavyweight debut against the division's former champion.

And ahead of stepping back into the famed Octagon, Jones has messaged his former foe.

On Instagram, the American wrote: "Looks like the battle continues."

The UFC star, who still holds the light-heavyweight title, was in talks to fight heavyweight contender Francis Ngannou before failing to strike a deal with Dana White.

But could Gustafsson's move to the heavyweight division spark Jones' jump to the weight?

'Bones' boasts two victories over Gustafsson at light-heavyweight. He defended his title in a 'Fight of the Year' battle at UFC 165 in September 2013, then stopped him at UFC 232 in December 2018.
