Doing that against the Thiago Santos's, and the Luke Rockhold's, and the Chris Weidman's, and Johnny Walker's of the world. That is a gigantic undertaking inside itself. In case I'm ready to do that, it'd be phenomenal. I accept that I will and I'm buckling down. I accept like never before that I'm intended to be all over. There's no fortuitous event that I'm in this position. I'm simply procuring it. All day every day."
With time, Jones supposes he'll get UFC "champ-champ" status. It is anything but a matter of "if" for him, yet rather a matter of "when." He needs the transition to heavyweight, in any case, to come at a characteristic time when his managers at the UFC are alright with it.
"I believe it's great to turn into a champ-champ, however I likewise realize I have room schedule-wise to do it," Jones said. "I have a great deal of time to do it. I'm 31 years of age.

Accommodating my family and breaking records.
"At the point when all is good and well I'll attempt it at heavyweight also. I think the fastest route for that to happen is for the UFC to connect with me and state, 'Hello, Jon, we need to deal with you to take on some greater folks.' And I'll oblige."
