Cain Velasquez vs. Jon Jones staredown pic from UFC World Tour in New York City


Fantasy fight? Maybe not, if "Bones" continues to run through the 205-pound division and can make good on his promise to move up in weight.

Sooner or later, Jon Jones is going to be a heavyweight.

After all, he's still growing and getting stronger, which means his days at 205 pounds, where he currently holds the division title, could be numbered. But can he be as effective against opponents who outweigh him? Will he be as fast and as agile with additional baggage?

Only one way to find out.

From the looks of this staredown against Cain Velasquez, which took place during Wednesday's (July 31) UFC World Tour in New York City, "Bones" doesn't need to pack on too many pounds to stay competitive. He towers over the champion and could be a difficult riddle to solve.

Or not.

Jones can forget about this long-term goal until he finishes up his duties at light heavyweight. That means getting past Alexander Gustafsson in the main event of the UFC 165 pay-per-view (PPV), scheduled for the Air Canada Centre in Toronto, Ontario, Canada on Sept. 21, 2013.

And let's not forget about Glover Teixeira.

Who will rule the 265-pound roost if and when Jones ever outgrows his current position remains to be seen. Velasquez has some work to do of his own, re-matching Junior dos Santos at UFC 166 this October in Houston. Until then, all we have to go on is this pic.
