Jon Jones Targeting Cain Velasquez Fight

Jon Jones says his division is ‘healthy,’ but targeting Cain Velasquez fight
By Mike Bohn, MMAJunkie
"Despite Jones’ claims of a 'healthy' weight class, the division could struggle to provide tests for the world’s top pound-for-pound fighter. After dismantling essentially everyone put in front of him since debuting in 2008, Jones knows the 205-pound division is not long for him, which is why a move up to heavyweight is targeted for the future.

"The New York native is a goal-orientated fighter, and once his work at light heavyweight is done, a 'super fight' against reigning heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez is the next goal on Jones’ career hit list."
