Jon Jones’ manager, Malki Kawa, feels as if the UFC light heavyweight champion could step into the Octagon twice more before 2013 closes up shop – provided his injured big toe continues to heal nicely.
Jones, who defeated Chael Sonnen last month, dislocated the toe during first round action. He went on to finish Sonnen, tying Tito Ortiz with five successful title defenses.
“I wouldn’t be surprised if Jon fights two more times this year,” said Kawa, while appearing on MMA’s Great Debate Radio. “That’s very aggressive and I know that’s crazy, but it’s something that he discussed with me and we talked about it. I told Superman to relax a little bit.”
Kawa added that all the focus for now is on fighting at 205 pounds once more to set the record for defenses. After that, everything – including a move to heavyweight and super-fights – will be talked about.
