MMAjunkie : declared in UFC champ Jon Jones open to Alexander Gustafsson rematch – but not in New York City

No final decisions have been made, Jones said, but he's open to the rematch with Gustafsson next. Between his two reigns as UFC champ, Jones already has wiped out most of the elite in his weight class. Newly crowned UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones is still weighing the options for his next fight, but he's not shutting down the possibility of a rematch with Alexander Gustafsson. I think the Gustafsson fight is an option for us right now.

"That was the first time I met Dwayne and it was such a great moment," Jones tells Rolling Stone. Jones met former WWE superstar Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, who is a longtime supporter of MMA, for the first time. "The Rock," who is currently listed as the highest paid actor in the world, told Jones witnessing his turnaround provides positively to his life and others.

Jones endured a turbulent 31-month period between his first victory over Cormier at UFC 182 in January 2015 and the rematch with "DC" at UFC 214.

Mir: Jon Jones can beat any UFC heavyweight — except Stipe Miocic
Reigning Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) light heavyweight champion Jon Jones is running out of potential contenders at 205 pounds, after finishing his business with Daniel Cormier at UFC 214 last month in Anaheim, California. Probably because "Bones" would be broken against the facebook/" target="_blank">likes of Stipe Miocic, who captured the crown against Fabricio Werdum before defending it against Alistair Overeem and Junior dos Santos, respectively.

You could hear when Jon called out Brock, stylistically that fight makes sense for Jon if he moves up to heavyweight.
