A champion seems to always have respect for a fellow champion.
UFC heavyweight champ Junior dos Santos expressed such remarks for UFC light heavyweight champ Jon Jones following Jones’ most recent victory over Rashad Evans at UFC 145.
“Well guys about the UFC 145 main event I just think Jon Jones has once again proven his supremacy in this division,” wrote dos Santos on his Twitter account.
Rumors of a future dos Santos-Jones fight have started to take shape as “Bones” continues to talk about a career in the heavyweight ranks.
For now, we’ll just have to enjoy dos Santos vs. Frank Mir, as Mir replaces Alistair Overeem in the main event of UFC 146 next month.
