Greg Jackson will remain by Jon Jones’ side if he does move to heavyweight. The light heavyweight champion has made it known that he’s interested in testing the heavyweight waters.
“If he wants to do that, then I’ll help him out,” said Jackson on The MMA Hour. “I’ve always said that it’s up to fighters and the management. Then it’s my job to figure out how we’re going to do that. If that’s the parameters they want to give, that’s what I do. And I actually enjoy that. Anything different is good.”
It was this past weekend that Jones tied the division record for most title defenses with five. He made quick work of Chael Sonnen at UFC 159. Prior to that, they coached opposite on The Ultimate Fighter.
Jones has no return date after breaking his big toe in the final moments of that Saturday win.
