Me personally feel like it’s to late for Jon to move up to heavyweight. He’s getting a little older, his recent fight with Anthony lion heart smith wasn’t impressive. He’s still a 🐐

If Jones is who they say he is, he should be able to overcome a weight disadvantage

I love this bones jones. Proud of him now to be this humble and he is now definitely one of the greatest i can call this time ATHLETE of all time
Před 19 dny
Jon Jones is 6’4 and moves around like a featherweight, he’s the most talented man to enter the octagon￼

Haha look at how fake this junkie acts. He has no respect for the game, and worst, no respect for himself. Has had multiple DUIs, hit & run, got UFC 151 cancelled due to declining to fight Chael Sonnen, failed a drug test prior to UFC 182, had to withdraw from UFC 200 due to testing positive for two banned substances, had his winning fight with Cormier overturned to a no-contest, after both Jones' A and B samples tested positive for Turinabol... it just goes on and on! Dude wasted his potential and threw away the chance of becoming one of the greatest. Actions speak louder then words. He a broken record on repeat.. talks the talk but cant walk the walk. Smh

he admits to walking around at 240 but doesnt want to face DC at HW because somehow DC will have an advantage? 6"4" 240 lbs with a 84,5 inch reach man is scared to face a 5"11 72 inch reach opponent because he'll have an advantage

I appreciate Jones giving Cormier props. Most people I know will never give the runner up credit, which I believe regardless of Jones personality and past antics, Cormier is always second best to Jones cause Jones is possibly the GOAT in skill set which we may never know since GSP is much smaller and there are no size rays. But what confuses me is how Jones contradicts himself from interview to interview. In other interviews he said he would be down to fight DC at either LHW or HW and crush him regardless and others he gives him all these props and says he won't let DC have an advantage at Heavyweight. I believe Jones would win 10 out of 10 with DC cause he is just that good but I just never know what his intentions are and how genuine he is actually being....

Rockhold would get smeshed by anyone in the LH top 5 man

When he said I don’t want to fight DC at HW. What he really mean is show me the 💰 💵 💷

Wow just lost respect for bones
Před 28 dny
They should make a tv show about steroids, call it, "Game of Jones"
Před 29 dny
Idk why everyone still want to see it other then the lack of big fights left in either division. Jones clearly won the first fight and then finished him in the rematch. Who have we seen finish DC? Enough said

Jon looking like dmx in his crack days

5:23 Jon can only laugh like this because he has that beard
Neither jon or dc want to fight at hw but if both successfuly defend their belts, dana will make it rain and convince them to fight at hw.
If he would express himself the way he did “off-camera” with DC then he’d feel better.
He's at peace because all that aggressive tbol is out of his system ;)
I think ppl are sleeping on Rockhold at LHW. He is nearly Jons size, and drastically depletes himself cutting down to 185. At 205, he will have a more durable chin, more power, etc. At that point he becomes a tricky matchup for jon. Their ground games are both solid so most of the fight would take place on the feet. Jon is the better striker imo, but Luke has a devastating/sneaky head kick. I still think Jon wins, but not in the dominating fashion most ppl think. On fight night, they would be nearly identical in size. And Jon's biggest struggles are against 1)fighters who do not fear his takedowns (gus, dc) and fighters with similar height and reach, both of which Rockhold has. We can talk about his chin all day, but we've never seen him healthy at a more natural weight of 205
Rockhold has a slight chance of beating jon, he’s a different breed than Anthony Smith , santos and Jonny walker
Jon can't beat DC without the JUICE and he's just beeing kinda honest about it
It's Jon Picos Jones.
Jon Jones much respect 💯
Ya O’NT say dat!!
Jon "Bones" Jones p4p #1 Walks around at 235 240..? Daaamn ! I would have liked to see Johnny Walker vs Dos Santos
I’m at 1 minute in this video and I’ve got a really wired question for myself, why have I always disliked Jon Jones??
Stojan i Zorica
King of ufc
DC was fighting at 70% at LHW! The weight cuts completely depleted him as he’s a naturally a HW. He’s such a great athlete at even operating at 70% he beat Cummings Hendo, Rumble, Gus and Volkan very convincingly, he just fell short with the best LHW in the world who possibly may have taken PEDs in Jon Jones. at HW no one including jones beats DC. He put the best HW to sleep in the first round for God’s sake!
Jones is better than Stipe could ever be lol
Před 29 dny
Well there goes the heavyweight division.
I knew it! Thanks for your honesty. Know is he the GOAT if he can't beat DC at heavyweight?
Wow.. Jon seems to have changed a lot since his last return, he seems more mature and respectful.. He gained more respect after his last two fights and I think he will gain 10x more respect after being this honest and respectful in this interview.
5:20.... best evil laugh of 2019
Face ur guests and just get more cameras
Just my opinion, jones is a cheater and all of his fights nor only have an asterisk but don't really count to me as being real. Sure he's monster but once a cheater always a cheater and there's no way to trust him to keep it real after he had to cheat before.
DC is at HW, so by refusing to fight with him there, He admits actually that Cormier is a stronger fighter than him now and that He cannot compete with Cormier on that level. Fair enough.
Because he will be tested positive again
I didnt think his ears or ear was that bad.
Jones is so mentally tough. Even when talking about Santos he says he just has to be himself. He will force Santos to fight a Jon Jones fight.
Note that his first reason for being happy again was "getting endorsements back"
Jiggaboo Jones.... No need for a trilogy Jones already tested POSITIVE IN BOTH FIGHTS...
Jones may not be the sharpest tool in the box in general, but his intelligence in the fighting game is hard to surpass.
GIVE JONES JOHNNY WALKER!!!! 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥
For real ufc fans we know this is not the 1st time jones has complimented DC he's done it many times before this trilogy is over Jones beat him twice DC can't let is go because he started this and Jon finished it DC is the best at what he does he just couldn't beat Jones because of all the emotion he took into both fights
Jon "THE DRUGGIE" JONES
dc wins stipe again ha? no...
Tony Ferguson the type of guy to know what he's worth and not get screwed by Don King Dana
whispering ummm RUMBLE i mean Santos* haha
5:24 - 5:26 .. someone meme that please
Jones can't say "Gustafsson"
THE GREATEST period
"I'm figuring out how to train." -Jon Jones in 2019. How scary of a comment is that? Basically his entire run up until this point was done with little to no training, lmao.
For the first time in many years, I love that Jon gives DC respect. My hat off.
2019 and there's still people who believe there's pro natty athletes
JJ will never move to HW devision
Jon is looking swole... He's been faithfully taking his picograms now that he received his 'hall pass' for USADA results from the UFC. Finally figured out his training he says, along with that devilish smirk that all sociopaths are known for when their little schemes work out, hahahahahaha.
Wtf luke rockhold?
I’m glad he said he’s looking at Luke and Johnny walker before heavyweight.
how to make a fight more successful ??? keep denying it when offered.
8:50 that how he lost by Jon Jones
I would insert an insult here about Jones figuring out his body but it's a small world and I'm trying to live in it
The Broken One
Jon talking like hes 16.
Kinda warms my heart hearing him compliment DC like that
I'M YOUR PAPI
Someone is adding more pictograms I can hear in your voice boy.
First round RNC Jones about to wrestle Thiago 😂😂😂😂
Artem GOAT Lobov
5:24 I’m terrified
His honesty is respectable I still think he would win but I like that he’s not bias
There is one man who’s got your number : Johnny Walker 🚶🏿♂️
Luke Rockhold will be Jon toughest test to date
Damn Jones looks old af. And he talked about HW before DC went up there, now he knows he don’t want that.
Nice to see Jones being honest about how good DC is at Heavyweight, but the only way the rematch makes sense is it it happens at Heavyweight. DC is clearly at his best when he is fighting at Heavyweight and I want to see the best version of DC fighting Jon Jones.
Yea we know the NAgger cheat congrats
10:08 Jones finally admits to being scared of DC.
Alexander C. M
Jones’ guile and cunning is on another level the UFC ain’t never seen. He’s weaponized honesty to lure DC into a bad matchup for the 3rd time at LHW. I appreciate the respect from Jones to DV but he’s simultaneously igging DC on as well! Savage Jon! Savage.
Such calm, charming, witty guy in interviews. Hard to believe he has such demons.
Once a cheater, always a cheater.
When DC retires he'll go to Heavyweight, mark my words.
Blue The goat
Jon Jones is always lying about his weight when bisbing ask him how come he doesn't fight Cormier at heavyweight and Jon replied because I only walk around 225 and that was right before the Anthony Smith fight he's just doesn't want to fight a heavyweight simple I've always knew that Jon was walking around 230-240 but then he tells Bisping he walks around 225 cuz Michael called him out on his bullshit
People Before Party
5:24 🤣 his Kawhi moment
Jones and dc r best fighters n ufc so far,
Did he just accidentally reveal rumble is coming back? 👀
This was a great interview. Very personable...
"Not gonna give him the weight advantage" Uses a steroid advantage LUL
Jon Jones acting all emotional. Sociopath's end game.
he rarely does interviews like this. hard to say.
"Doing all the right picograns to perform at the highest level"
Jones knows he couldn't beat DC without the PEDs
didn't watch the video, but in response to the title: because He would shiz his pants if he had to fight DC at DC's natural weight without using any anabolic steroids. That would be like his 2 brothers making it to the NFL without steroids... A life of delusion, rationalization, entitlement, and favoritism.
Jon's trying to leverage a higher pay day for himself at HW, too bad Cormier ain't street smart enough to push for the same thing. The narrative DC can beat Jones at HW will sell more PPV, but also if Jones loses, they can possibly push for a rematch as well, aka even more money. That's def not possible if they fight at LW for a 3rd time. The whole size advantage Jones points out is utter BS. The guy just wants UFC to compensate him as he plays reluctant to move up. Jones himself was bragging about being 235-240 and DC's fat at 245. Let alone Jones' height, reach advantage, an opponent he has beat twice and also....Jones was willing to fight Brock. Why is Hardy so nice to not question this fool who's selling wolf tickets
Jon Jones going up to heavyweight and fighting DC is like Khabib going up and fighting Robert Whitaker.. it would be easier for Whitaker to go down than for Khabib to go up.
Somebody kick and break Jone Jones's skinny twig legs already like they did with Silva's skinny legs. Those twig legs are holding up a lot of weight. First person to exploit his legs in a fight will win.
Definitely the GOAT
He has to prove more to himself. For instance, he has to prove he can pass a drug test.
The fight is also unlikely to happen because Dana and The Golden Snitch have to pay off USADA to say Jon's test levels are normal before DC retires.
BONES VS RANDY BROWN
that’s incredibly humble what Jon said about fighting DC at heavyweight
