Jon Jones says he would love to fight Fedor

You can’t help but admire Jon Jones’ gumption. Dude hasn’t even defended his UFC light heavyweight championship and he is already saying Fedor would be a good test for him. Sure that’s true, and I think Bones might actually be the favorite in that fight (or would he be? My god!) but I don’t think fighting a dude who is a dozen years older than you, on a two fight losing streak who already tried to retire in the cage before his handler’s told him he couldn’t is the best litmus test for one’s career. I would still watch it though, heck I would pay to watch that.

The hypothetical Fedor matchup and what Bones thinks of fighting Dan Henderson was brought up by our friend Sergio Non during a USA Today interview over UFC 129 weekend.

“Oooh, Fedor that would be the fight that interests me the most, I admire Fedor a lot, and that would be a great gauge to see where I’m at in my career. As far as fighting Dan Henderson, I would love that fight, as well. I’m not trying to call them out but I would be honored to fight either one of them.”

The more I think about it, I want to see Bones/Fedor more than Fedor/Hendo.
