Even at the successful-est, most consistently performing aspects in his UFC career Jon Jones has constantly detect as a a little immediate persona. The more or less man who, is seemingly considered on-line telling folks to ideal discontinue house and salvage nothing sooner or later, and then salvage himself getting charged with using whereas intoxicated and negligent utilize of a firearm ideal a pair of days later.
So seemingly it’ll attain as no surprise that his lengthy teased high-tail to heavyweight is coming with ideal as phenomenal doable for course reversal.
“Obviously, if Jon Jones wanted that fight, we wouldn’t utter Jon Jones the chance,” Dana White talked about of a possible bout towards Jan Blachowicz, almost at this time after the Polish powerhouse picked up Jones’ no longer too lengthy ago vacated gentle heavyweight title with a second round TKO over Dominick Reyes.
Whether or no longer or no longer Jones is largely sufficient in chasing Blachowicz down for a bout remains to be considered, but he’s at the least giving the notion some thought.
Would you guys be frustrated if I went support and grabbed my belt real posthaste?

And whereas that might seemingly per chance ideal be a case of Jones over all over again chasing the most up-to-date unique thought in entrance of him, Daniel Cormier sees a little something else for your entire grief. The longtime rival to Jones and inclined two-division champion used to be support on his new net-solid with Ariel Helwani this week, where he gave a pair of tips to Jones’ sudden willingness to fight Blachowicz after leaving gentle heavyweight within the face of a possible Dominick Reyes rematch.
“That’s so whack,” Cormier talked about (transcript thru MMA Combating). “Contain you ever met a man that’s so out of contact? He’s out of contact. It’s enjoy, OK, Jon, then why no longer ideal high-tail, ‘I was insecure of Dominick Reyes. Now I’d like to return to 205 and fight Jan Blachowicz because he beat Dom.’ That’s crazy. Why would he salvage that? I imply, who does that? Who does that?
“He might seemingly per chance admire fought Reyes. This is in a position to seemingly admire been him and Reyes. This used to be imagined to be him and Reyes. As an different, he gave up the belt. He gave up the belt and talked about, ‘I’d like to fight at heavyweight.’ Now, ‘Per chance, I’ll return?’ How might seemingly per chance you be so out of contact? I don’t salvage it. . . That’s your boy over there kicking folks whereas they’re down and barely phenomenal admitting, ‘I didn’t desire to fight Dominick Reyes but I’ll fight Jan Blachowicz.’ That’s crazy.”
Cormier went on to add that, whereas he’s vital of Jones’ motivations, if he had been ready to peaceful make gentle heavyweight (and no longer be retired) he’d seemingly be chasing that Blachowicz fight too.
“No disrespect, ideal because I judge… it’s beautiful, trustworthy?” DC talked about of Blachowicz’s newly crowned site as LHW champ. “Must you admire the footage of folks aging victories over him, you mediate you might seemingly per chance salvage it, too. Any fighter does. And must you’re a man enjoy myself or Jones, then, needless to command, you mediate you might seemingly per chance beat him. That’s why Jones will high-tail fight him.”
Undoubtedly, Jan might seemingly per chance admire one or two things to command about that—but it no doubt doesn’t sound enjoy DC is ready to lace up the gloves all over again.
No probability champ, congrats on a gargantuan take. You’re the person! You’re the king now, you shouldn’t fear bout what an earlier retired man is announcing. Substantial job getting that title! https://t.co/9upejqah5P
