If Jon Jones expects to one day face Israel Adesanya in the Octagon, he will have to return to light heavyweight.
This was announced in an interview with ESPN by the president of the UFC, Dana White.
“It should be light heavyweight,” said the head of the organization. “Jon Jones has fought in the light heavyweight division his entire career. Israel Adesanya will rise and face Ian Blachowicz for the title. The question is, will Jon Jones want to return to light heavyweight? “
Recall that the fight between Israel Adesanya and Ian Blachowicz will head the UFC 259 tournament on March 6, and Jon Jones will face the winner of the heavyweight title fight between Stipe Miocic and Francis Ngannou until the end of the year.
