UFC Heavyweight Champion Junior Dos Santos Impressed With Jon Jones

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.

    Tough fight for Mir.  I’d be surprised if he makes it out of round 1.

    The only thing about jds vs Jones is that Jones is scared of jds,someone asked jones what he thought about fighting jds and he said something like he thought it was a good matchup but he had to much respect for jds,to me saying you’ll fight a friend but not a person you don’t really know but have too much respect to fight him shows fear,to me rashad being his friend should command more respect than an aquaintance

    I’d never say scared… but, when Jones came to Brazil, he expressed his feelings in order not to fight JDS, once, in that occasion they became friends…

    It might not be a problem to Jones fighting another friend now.
