Jon Jones ‘I’ve Got a Feeling’ I’ll Fight Israel Adesanya
Jon Jones says he’s gunning to fight 4 TIMES in 2019 — and wants to keep that pace as long as he can — telling TMZ Sports he’s already got some high-profile opponents in mind.
Israel Adesanya. Johnny Walker. Thiago Santos.
Of course, people have been comparing Israel Adesanya to Jones … saying the 29-year-old has a similar physique, fight style and fight IQ.
Jon’s clearly aware of all the talk out there and says he’s “got a feeling me and him will eventually fight each other.”
“I’d be excited for that challenge.”
He’s also on track to fight Kelvin Gastelum for the UFC interim middleweight title at UFC 236 on April 13.
As for Johnny Walker, he’s on an 8-fight win streak and has been creating all sorts of buzz for himself after a big victory over Justin Ledet at UFC Fight Night on February 2.
“My job is to knock ’em down as they come,” Jones tells TMZ Sports … “My job is just to be like a brick wall.”
Jones is only 31 years old … and previously told us he wants to be the first UFC fighter ever to hold a 50-0 record.
