Randy Couture recently discussed his documentary, his legendary career, and Jon Jones in an interview with MMAFightingonSBN. He spoke about how he could conquer two divisions at a time when that hadn’t been done before in the UFC.
It was never any doubt that Randy’s career was anything less than remarkable. The retired MMA fighter is also a former US Army Sergeant, Actor, and former collegiate and Greco-Roman wrestler. Safe to say, he’s been around for a while.
The UFC Hall of Famer also offered his thoughts on Jones moving up to heavyweight. Jon, who last beat Dominick Reyes in UFC 274, has recently made the jump to Heavyweight from Light Heavyweight. After vacating the Light Heavyweight title, it is clear that he has his sights set on Stipe Miocic and the Heavyweight belt.
” I’ll be interested to see him. He’s a big guy, tall guy,” says Randy. He believes that ‘Bones’ has the frame to put on the weight and feels that his technical skills are as good as anybody’s. “It is a challenge” Randy explains, going up against the bigger, stronger guys and how he would like to see Jones navigate his way in the division.
Early on, he also gave the ‘perfect’example of Israel Adesanya, as someone who was able to accomplish this feat. He emphasizes how when technical skills are almost on par with the board, “the size and power can make the difference.”
Big return from Jon ‘Bones’ Jones
Even though ‘Bones’ has been on the sidelines since February 2020, he’s been making headlines consistently owing to his highly expected Heavyweight debut. Things picked up even more steam after Dana White revealed how Jones fits in the Heavyweight title picture.
He’ll face a tough challenge, as the winner of Stipe Miocic vs. Francis Ngannou 2 awaits him later this year. As Dana White explained, if Stipe Miocic defeats Ngannou again, then we could see Jones V Miocic or Jones V Ngannou. He was adamant, however, that Miocic V Ngannou 2 will happen. He was quick to confirm that Francis Ngannou has earned his shot for the title and Jones will certainly have to wait his turn.
Fans are still in a dilemma as to who emerges victorious in the Miocic-Ngannou rematch. However, either of these two dangerous Heavyweights would be an enormous obstacle (literally) for Jones in his Heavyweight debut.
