Matt Mitrione wants to give Jon “Bones” Jones a rude welcome into the UFC’s heavyweight ranks.
Jones, 25, has essentially cleaned out the light heavyweight division, and a victory on Sept. 22 over Vitor Belfort, will undoubtedly result in MMA fans clamoring to see him move up to test his skills against bulkier opponents.
In an interview with Ariel Helwani on “The MMA Hour,” Mitrione said that he wants to fight the guy to introduce Jones to the heavyweight division.
“He seems really disingenuous, blah, not my flavor of a human being,” Mitrione added. “I even told Joe Silva, if he talks of going to heavyweight, I’d love to welcome Jon Jones to heavyweight. I’d love to try to punch you in the face.”
