Jon Jones Teases Move Up To Heavyweight In Response To Israel Adesanya's UFC 243 Victory

Jon Jones Teases Move Up To Heavyweight In Response To Israel Adesanya's UFC 243 Victory

Jon Jones insists he won't be waiting around for Isreal Adesanya while teasing a sensational move up to the UFC heavyweight division.

A potential bout between Jones and Adesanya has been mooted for some time, and Francis Ngannou offered his thoughts on the middleweight champion reigning victorious at UFC 243.

"I think Adsanya is moving up to light heavyweight just to fight Jones lol," the heavyweight contender wrote in response to Adesanya's stunning showing in Melbourne.

His post didn't go unnoticed by Jones who responded by suggesting a move up to heavyweight could be on the cards.

"By the time this kid gets his confidence together I'll probably already be in the heavyweight division. I don't need to wait till 2021 to start believing in myself," he said.

Jones has been linked with a move up in weight following his dominant stint as UFC light-heavyweight champion.

But he's held off on switching divisions though a heavyweight debut in the UFC appears to be on the horizon despite talks of a super-fight with Adesanya.

Adesanya, meanwhile, has only been in the UFC since February 2018 yet he's already captured the middleweight crown and is on the cusp of super stardom following his near-flawless display over the weekend.

He stopped Robert Whittaker in the second round to become the undisputed UFC middleweight champion.

The Nigerian-born Kiwi is slated to make the first defence of his 185lbs title against undefeated Brazilian contender Paulo Costa next year.
