UFC heavyweight contender Jairzinho Rozenstruik is intrigued in a long run combat with previous mild heavyweight winner Jon Jones.
Jones dominated above the UFC mild heavyweight division for lots of decades, but just lately vacated his title with options to make a permanent shift up to the heavyweight division.
Rozenstruik, who holds the No. 3 place in the UFC heavyweight rankings, is psyched that Jones is joining the division.
It’s enjoyable and it is a big commitment Jon Jones in the heavyweight division,” Rozenstruik informed MMA Junkie. “Because you know, that man is 1 of the finest and he’s heading to appear in and attempt to do his detail. You as a fighter in the heavyweight division practice challenging and you have to make confident that if you get that fight, you win.
“You don’t want to go in there and do a little something crazy and shed the battle. You want to go in there and win, it doesn’t subject what it usually takes. For me, it’s a big inspiration.”
Jones is envisioned to struggle the winner of an future heavyweight title battle between winner Stipe Miocic and challenger Francis Ngannou. Rozenstruik, on the other hand, is slated to battle French Muay Thai professional Ciryl Gane on March 13.
Whilst both equally adult males have their hands complete with other issues at the minute, Rozenstruik hopes to fulfill Jones in the Octagon at some issue in the future, as a winner of the MMA legend would be a substantial feather in his cap.
“Yeah, that would be pleasant,” Rozenstruik mentioned. “I mean, he’s the biggest of all-time. Everyone wants to fight the greatest of all time and see wherever you’re at in your profession.
“If you get that fight you’re going to be even far more motivated, and yeah, you would be doing work harder for what is coming. Jon Jones is one particular of the ideal, but that doesn’t imply that you want to reduce versus Jon Jones. You want to win towards the greatest. To be the ideal, you have to beat the very best.”
