DC came out and said he would fight Francis so this is Jon’s way of making it look like he would fight him too. It won’t happen. Jon is probably going to ask for an insane amount of money knowing that the UFC won’t pay it and leaving him to say he wanted to fight but it didn’t happen because they didn’t pay him enough. He has been pretending he wants to fight heavyweights his entire career. He wouldn’t even fight DC at heavyweight when DC had the belt. He insisted DC cut down to 205 again to fight him.
if I’m wrong and they sign this fight feel free to abuse me about it. I sure hope I’m wrong but I doubt it. If Jon was serious about going to HW he would have challenged Stipe already. He is just blowing smoke.
