Jon Jones – ‘People want to see me fight Joshua or Wilder’

Jon Jones, arguably the best MMA fighter on the planet, has said ‘people’ want to see him take on Deontay Wilder and Anthony Joshua.
Just who these people are, no one knows.

Jones who has just had a 4-year suspension cut to 14 months by USADA for helping them in their investigations of the use of illegal substances within the UFC, is expected to make a return to the sport towards the end of the year.
With Conor McGregor has made a lot of money by facing Floyd Mayweather in the boxing ring, it seems Jones would like to do something similar.
Right now my mindset is more about making money, even those big fights,Jones told RT Sports.
You know, I watched Conor McGregor fight Floyd Mayweather, and it was high risk, high reward. There’s a saying, ‘scared money don’t make money’. I gotta be brave when I get back in the game and start challenging guys that I could possibly lose to because that’s what people want to see.”
The former light heavyweight UFC champion could make a return in the heavyweight division, especially as arch-rival Daniel Cormier has become the heavyweight champion to add to the light heavyweight strap he holds.

It was the heavyweights in both sports that he gave a mention too.

They want to see Jones versus Velasquez, they want to see Jones versus Ngannou, that’s what people want to see, and that’s where my mindset is,” Jones said.

Jones versus Anthony Joshua, or Deontay Wilder, you know, that’s what people want to see.”

He also said he would be excited by a rematch against Alexander Gustafsson.

“I’ve been hearing about the possibility that Alexander Gustafsson will be the first person I fight when I come back, which I’m excited about,” Jones said.

“A lot of people feel like he beat me the first time we fought, which didn’t happen, it was close, but he didn’t beat me.

“So Alexander Gustafsson is a possible first fight back, I’d love to fight him again and take him seriously this time. The first time I fought him, I wasn’t living life the way a champion should be living life.

“I didn’t train very hard for that fight, I’m not making excuses, but this is just the truth, I could have given it a lot more effort, I got fatigued after the first two rounds, which is something that never normally happens in my fights, so I feel like the next time I fight him, I will finish him.”

Do you want to see Jones face WilderJoshua or stick to MMA and face Gustafsson?

They’re bigger than him… and in their world. This wouldn’t end up well for Jon. He can go win the HW or LHW title in the UFC… whenever he wants. He’s the best.
