8 Dream Fights For Jon Jones As A UFC Heavyweight

Imagine if these fights happen...

UFC/WWE

Not many fighters have reached the heights of Jon 'Bones' Jones.

The Former two-time UFC Light Heavyweight Champion moves up after amassing a 26-1 record in the exciting division, but in the mind of most he's unbeaten as a professional (screw your disqualification, Steve Mazzagatti!).

Jones' transition above 205 lbs comes at an exciting time in the division, which features a champion as impressive as they come in Stipe Miocic, the knockout tear of Francis Ngannou, the rising Curtis Blaydes and his razor elbows, and powerful newcomers like Jairzinho Rozenstruik. With mouth-watering fantasy fights with stars of old like Cain Velasquez, Bones' journey to becoming the 'Baddest Man on the Planet' could be filled with bouts MMA fans have only previously been able to fantasize about.
