Jonathan Brookins plans on fighting at both 145 and 155 pounds in the UFC

TUF 12 finalist, Jonathan Brookins says either it be a win, lose or draw on Saturday night in Las Vegas, Nevada, a move down to featherweight is where he eventually see’s himself competing.

Brookins, speaking via MMAWeekly.com, said:

“I’ve definitely always got a big spot in my heart for the 145er’s, it will always be there. I don’t put on too much weight and I feel great at 155, I like it as well.”

“It’s crazy because I think each guy brings in a different skill sets. When I go in to fight a 145er I kind of look at them slightly different than the 155ers, and the 155ers definitely always bring a lot more strength to the table, so I’ve got to make sure I prepare for that. I like competing with the 155ers, and I feel like it only gives me an advantage when I go back down and fight the 145lbers.”

“I’m open to everything. I’m just going to go by the fights when they need me. If there’s a good fight at 45 and they call and say ‘hey we need you here’, I’ll be there. If there’s a fight at 55 and they say ‘we need you there’, I’ll be there.”
