Junior Dos Santos Believes Jon Jones Would Make Great Heavyweight

Current UFC heavyweight champion Junior dos Santos can see the kind of skill-set that UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones sports.

That’s why dos Santos believes “Bones” would make a worthy challenger in the UFC’s heavyweight division.

“Jon Jones is really good,” said dos Santos, while appearing on Spike TV’s MMA Uncensored Live recently. “He’s really good. If he comes up to the heavyweight division, it’s gonna be tough for us. I really like him, but if he comes up to the heavyweight division and he gets the chance to fight for the title, we’re gonna fight.”

Dos Santos is coming off a knockout victory over Frank Mir, while Jones is set to face Dan Henderson for the title on September 1 at UFC 151.
