Jon Jones would be more than happy to fight James Toney

UFC light heavyweight, Jon Jones explains that he’d be more than happy to face heavyweight boxing champion, James Toney after the pair engaged in war of words last week.

Jones, speaking via MMAJunkie.com, said:

“I got up to about 231 (pounds) this time around, and today I performed around 226 (pounds), so this is the heaviest I’ve ever performed at, and I felt as if I was just as fast.”

“Randy Couture, he bumps up to heavyweight all the time, and he always looks very impressive against the slower guy and now I actually have a heavyweight that I wouldn’t mind fighting. That’s James Toney – ‘Mr. I’m going to slap Jon in the face.’ I’d bump up for that fight any day.”
