UFC light heavyweight champ Jon Jones has hinted in the past of plans to move up in weight to the heavyweight division. During the recent UFC 156 Q&A with the fans, Jones talked once again about the eventual move.
“I think heavyweight is going to come along around 2014, maybe even late this year,” said Jones “Who knows. It’ll definitely be a fight for the fans.”
When questioned on a match-up at the event, Jones responded by simply saying “Alistair Overeem.”
The proposed match-up will not take place anytime soon as Jones looks to make his title defense against TUF coach opponent Chael Sonnen and Alistair Overeem looks to face Antonio “Big Foot” Silva this weekend on the pay-per-view event.
