He's sticking at light heavyweight...
Jon Jones has put an end to his desire to fight at heavyweight. MMAjunkie reports that Jones said today that his previous desire to move up to heavyweight has passed, as he has plenty of potential fights at light heavyweight still.
Jones next fights this Saturday against Glover Teixeira at UFC 172. Dana White said of Jones' new comments, "If he gets to the point in his career when he wants to move up to heavyweight, I mean, what he accomplished in the first year and a half as a light heavyweight was incredibly impressive. The fact that he can move up – I've been waiting for Anderson Silva to move up to 205, but he never wanted to do it. I'd like to see it."
