Now that Jon Jones has defeated Daniel Cormier, discussion whether the UFC’s 205 champ should move to heavyweight is increasing, but Fabricio Werdum has ‘advised’ him against it.
If you recall, it wasn’t long ago when Jones said he’d fight the interim heavyweight champ “all day”, and the renowned fighter has talked about fighting at heavyweight for some time.
Following UFC 182, however, here is what Werdum relayed to Jones on Twitter:

Jones also relayed after he decisioned Cormier, that he’d be interested in facing the latter’s teammate, heavyweight champ Cain Velasquez. While Jones has to get past the winner of Alexander Gustafsson-Anthony Johnson first, if he does, a heavyweight fight could be in his future.
