Jon Jones shared a very interesting image on social media a few hours ago, maybe predicting who he wants to face next. The picture has already been liked by more than 75 thousand people and it tells us that MMA fans want to see the fight happen; Jon Jones against Brock Lesnar.
Jon ‘Bones’ Jones Rules again
‘Bones’ returned to the octagon in supreme style knocking out his biggest rival in three rounds. He looked as sharp as he was at 23 when he became the youngest champion in UFC history.
He is the greatest light heavyweight in MMA history, so it’s natural that fans want as much of him as possible.
A possible fight with Brock Lesnar has been all everyone can talk about. Jones himself has called Lesnar out, and the latter is also expressed his desire to get back into the octagon.
But that bout can’t happen until 2018, so who can Jones face before that?
Other Possible Opponents
Alexander Gustafsson is one fighter that gave Jon Jones some trouble. He came the closest, apart from Cormier, to beating him. Hardcore MMA fans salivate over the possible rematch between these two.
Volkan Oezdemir is also a good possibility. The talented Swiss has a 15-1 record and can be a good match for Jon. He is not a ‘big name’ fighter like the rest of the possibilities but the fight will be just as explosive as any Jones has been a part of.
Jones is enjoying getting being at the top of the game. So he should. He has clawed his way back from adversity and mistakes that kept him out of the sport for over a year.
Whichever fighter he takes on next will have his work cut out for him; be it Lesnar, Gustafsson, Oezdemir or any other fighter.
MMA Fans want to see ‘Bones’ fight, they want the opponent to get the best out of him.
