Fabricio Werdum Down For Jon Jones’ Challenge For A “Super Fight”

After expressing a desire to take have some MMA “Super fights” Jon Jones has a willing opponent, interim UFC Heavyweight Champion Fabricio Werdum.

Jones said this about Werdum recently to the MMA media:

“There are definitely a lot of heavyweights that I know I would beat. A lot of heavyweights that could give me a hell of a run or possibly beat me. I keep it real. I’m smaller than these guys. A guy like Werdum, I would fight him every day, all day. Why? Because he’s not the biggest guy. But the heavyweights I believe would give me the hardest time are the big ones. Not necessarily the better skilled ones — just the bigger ones. You shoot in and they sprawl out on you, that’s going to take a lot of energy to finish that shot, you know what I mean?”

After hearing of these comments, Werdum had this to say in return:

“I don’t know why didn’t he said that before I become a champion. He said it now but I would fight him for sure without any problem. He has to go up or make it a catchweight bout. But my biggest goal is to fight Cain Velasquez [undisputed champion] to unify the belts. Dana White even spoke to the media it is going to happen in June. It has even a schedule and he would like this fight to happen in Mexico, so no way we will do it. He (Jones) said it just to say, I don’t know why he did it, but he also stated he would fight me every day, so he means that he wants to train with me. To fight everyday he has to train, right? The academy is over at Kings MMA, where we train hard everyday. If he wants to pay us a visit or train with us and is ashamed of saying it, that’s fine. Welcome, when he wants, we are in Huntington Beach, at Kings MMA. He can train with us everyday (laughs).”
