Greg Jackson Feels Jon Jones At Heavyweight Would Be A Welcome Challenge

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

Greg Jackson has built himself an empire in New Mexico, as Jackson’s MMA features several of the elite fighters in the world.

Leading the way is UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones. Fresh off his fifth successful title defenses, Jones continued to hint at a possible move to heavyweight in the future.

With his body and age, it appears as if it’s only a matter of time before “Bones” dukes it out with the big boys of the UFC – and Jackson is welcoming that decision.

“I’m okay with whatever they want to do. If he wants to do that, then I’ll help him out,” said Jackson, during a recent appearance on The MMA Hour. “I’ve always said that it’s up to the fighters and the management. It’s my job to figure out how we’re going to do that. If that’s the parameters they want to give, that’s what I do. I actually enjoy that; anything different is good.”

Jones seems interested in a possible super-fight with Anderson Silva before any move to heavyweight. The division is currently ruled by fellow former Iowa Central Community College NJCAA national champion Cain Velasquez.
