    Its been written in the stars.

    Jones wins the HW belt, Izzy wins the LHW belt.

    Izzy fights Jones for the HW belt to win it all and become the three weight world champ. And GOAT. Izzy should retire then and there.

    Jones is scared of israel because his wrestling is shot now that he's older

    Both Jan and Israel are bigger risks to his legacy its not that bad to lose at hw if he loses at hw he can say it was not my natural weight class anyways

    After his striking performance against Reyes, it's natural that he doesn't want that fight. Adesanya and Reyes are in different striking worlds, not even close.

    Fighting the likes of Anthony Smith does wonders for his legacy though...

    Put your Jones hatred aside for a second and admit that he's right.

    There's only one belt he needs and that's HW.

    Get the fight booked.

    I agree but until he makes the move to HW it's all talk .
    lets see him fight Stipe or Ngannou

    Still waiting for the day that Jon and/or the UFC announce a fight scheduled for him in the HW division. It's been a really long time coming.

    Fighting these guys clean for once would do wonders for your legacy.

    Jones's record is 0-0-1 as far as anyone with a brain is concerned.

    Good.. I want to see him at HW too...

    Izzy could always come up ...

    Jones is right, what does beating the MW champion mean to a guy that was king at 205...it means more to izzy's legacy not jones since hes the one moving up

    Ugh i cant believe im agreeing with Jon Jones....

    Would be funny if Jan beats Israel and Stipe beats Jon.

    So this is what we're working with..

    Just like bankers who's on coke, adderall are really broke.. or artists who smoke weed or did lsd never really painted anything or wrote any songs..

    The naivety of this is just amazing..

    Agree. Jon may just be trolling everyone with all these crap talk on twitter all this time, maybe just to keep his name up there and be talked about, but I think deep down he knows that HW is the next best career move and his eyes is on the prize all along.

    I have to agree with him. The same guys acting llike he is ducking will belittle his win if he does fight either guy. Especially Izzy since he will become just a MW again.

    It's HW or nothing if he wants to increase his legacy. But it might be too late since he already seems to be slowing down. Ngannou would be really tough for him stylewise.

    Jon is absolutely on the money here, he’s already been smashing MW’s most of his career, what’s to gain by adding Izzy to his list

    Every top heavyweight he would fight is a tougher fighter than Adesanya

    :confused: HUH? I don't know anyone who thinks his record is 0-0-1. Maybe Im missing something, but that makes no sense.
