UFC Quick Quote: Jon Jones would move to heavyweight to beat James Toney up

"It's funny. Someone asked me about the way I feel about James Toney and I just said that I think he's naive and ignorant by thinking he can stop Randy Couture's wrestling with a hand combination, I guess he took offense to that. He said he would slap me if he ever saw me at a UFC event. I'll let that guy prove his own ignorance. Obviously slapping me he could face some assault and battery charges. How about this, get by Randy Couture first and then call me out, and we can settle it inside the Octagon. I would move up to heavyweight to beat him up."

Jon Jones spoke to The Daily Line on Versus about his growing beef with James Toney after his dominating first round victory over Vladimir Matyushenko at UFC on Versus 2. "Bones" is referring to this quote from "Lights Out" where Toney called him "Homo" and said he would slap Jones if he ever saw him. Jon seems to be pretty serious about putting a quick stop to the filth that has been pouring out of Toney's mouth for the last couple months. If in some miraculous fashion James manages to knock out Randy Couture later this month, who's interested in Jon Jones stepping up to heavyweight and stepping into the Octagon to face James Toney?
