Jon Jones has been extremely vocal these last few months, especially considering how Daniel Cormier, the man he defeated by knockout back at UFC 214 (overturned), is currently parading around as a duel champion for the light heavyweight and heavyweight divisions. Now, in an exclusive with RT Sport, Bones states that he wants two more opportunities to face DC, and hopes that his suspension from the USADA doesn’t stop him from becoming the first “true” double heavyweight champion.
What God has for Daniel Cormier is for Daniel Cormier and what he has for me is for me, and so I had to find a place in my heart to be happy for him.
At the same time, I feel like when I come back into the game and get my light heavyweight championship back and become a heavyweight champion simultaneously, I feel like the fans will know that I’m truly the first heavyweight and light heavyweight champion.
I think that beating him a third time would really do something to his confidence. In his head, I feel like he thinks he can still beat me, especially because the fight was going fairly well until I knocked him out. I want to crush his confidence.
Leading into our fourth fight, a possible fourth fight for the heavyweight championship of the world, his confidence won’t be in the right spot. It won’t, and I think it will help me take that fourth victory over him and that heavyweight championship from him. I think I have his number.
No matter how hard he trains, I train a little bit harder. I’m a little bit younger, a bit longer, a little cuter.
What do you think fight fans? Will Jones ever get another opportunity in the octagon?
