If Jon Jones (17-1) wants to go up a weight class and become a heavyweight, Fabricio Werdum (16-5-1) is open to the idea of being his welcoming mat.
“I would love to make a fight with Jon Jones, but he has to see that heavyweight is something else,” said Werdum to TATAME. “Of course he is champion, for it has size and all the qualities, but it would be another fight.”
Within the last month, Jones made his fourth successful light heavyweight championship defense since winning the title in the first half of 2011. Since Werdum returned to the UFC this year, he has won both of this fights.
There has been no opponent or time when either fighter returns to action.
