Guest of honor at 'PFL x Bellator', held last weekend in Saudi Arabia, Jon Jones made public the information that he does not intend to retire after his next UFC commitment. In an interview broadcast live at the event, the Ultimate heavyweight champion (up to 120,2kg) admitted his desire to test himself against three opponents. Interestingly, the athlete pointed out a name that is not part of the squad led by Dana White.

“I think there are a lot of fights that the world wants right now. The fight against Tom aspinall it would be huge. Me against Francis (Ngannou) would be huge, and Stipe (Miocic), too, would be a respectable opponent. I don't know how it will unfold, my prediction is that I will face Stipe Miocic, but that's not my role. I’m just going to do my job,” Jones said.

A living legend of MMA, Jones has been away from competition for a season. At the end of 2023, the athlete ended up suffering a serious shoulder injury, which removed him from his first title defense, which would take place in the UFC 295.

Last year, Jon, 36, even speculated about his retirement after the confrontation against Stipe Miocic, which ended up not happening, given the champion's injury. Months later, the athlete goes back and indicates that he can continue competing in the sport.
