Jon Jones open to heavyweight super fight, 'challenge of a lifetime' against UFC champ Stipe Miocic


Joshua Dahl-USA TODAY Sports

Former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) light heavyweight champion Jon Jones can't seem to make up his mind.

A few years back, "Bones" was determined to make an eventual move to heavyweight, where he would attempt to replicate his success at 205 pounds (more on that here). More recently, the oft-maligned mixed martial artist downplayed any potential trips up north.

But when opportunity comes knocking...

I swear I've heard this someplace before.

Jones was expected to compete for the light heavyweight title at UFC 200 back in July; however, a failed drug test booted him from his Daniel Cormier rematch and "Bones" has since been relegated to the sidelines until further notice (more on that mess here).

As for Miocic?

The hard-hitting bruiser captured the crown by stiffening Fabricio Werdum earlier this year, then made his first title defense with a thrilling first-round knockout over Alistair Overeem -- who trains alongside Jones in Albuquerque -- at UFC 203 just last weekend (watch it).

Jones vs. Miocic ... who ya' got?
