Yep, just couldn't see myself beating Jan, his style is like nothing I've seen before and the thought of fighting a middleweight striker in 2021 was the final straw, figured Francis take down defense was worse, had to run https://t.co/88jAHojzlL- BONY (@JonnyBones) January 2, 2021
Jones is unsure of when he will return to the octagon, but he has admitted that for the "first time in my career" that he is ready for the heavyweight division.
The future UFC Hall of Famer explained: "I feel ready to take on any challenge, this is the first time in my career that I can say that.
"I finally have the size to be ready for anyone. No, I'm not worried about cardio, I hold myself to a very high standard -- a light heavyweight standard.
"Some of these guys may be stronger, but they can't possibly push as hard as I can.
"I've been able to outwork literally every [light heavyweight], I'll do the same at heavy. It's called heart."
