Over the years, many fans and pundits alike have felt that Jon Jones has the natural frame to fight and compete at heavyweight. Even Jones after his victory at UFC 214 over Daniel Cormier had called out and expressed his interest in fighting the former UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar. However, this time it is the heavyweight division’s boogeyman Francis Ngannou who wants to face Jones.
Ngannou in a recent interview given to TMZ Sports, expressed his wish to some day fight Jon Bones Jones. Here’s what he had to say about potentially some day facing off against the UFC light heavyweight champion:
Personally, I mean, it would be a good fight, first of all for the fans, for me, yes. Even though Jon Jones is a light heavyweight, this guy has made his legacy, dominating the whole division. He’s a big dude. I met him once, we almost, we are the same height, we are almost the same thing. I might just have a few pounds on him. That would be a legit fight. I’m here for the challenge, but I just want to take things one at a time. I don’t want to mix them up. But yes, I would definitely want that fight.
