Jon Jones wants to have an active 2013

MMA’s Great Debate Radio checks in with Jon Jones’ manager Malki Kawa to see what the young fighter’s plans are for the rest of the year. Transcription via MMA Weekly:

“For right now, he’s just anxious to get that boot off and make sure his toe is good to go.  As long as he feels good coming off that boot and when he goes to put pressure on it, he can walk without a boot, and his toe is strong and everything’s good there then it shouldn’t (delay his return).  One thing about Jon is he’s not going to take any chances whatsoever.  As long as his foot heals properly and he’s got no issues with it, it shouldn’t delay anything.

“I’ll just tell you this, I wouldn’t be surprised if Jon fights two more times this year.  That’s very aggressive and I know that’s crazy, but it’s something that he discussed with me and we talked about it.  I told Superman to relax a little bit, you’re injured right now, but he’s got an aggressive timeline in his head. Certain goals and accomplishments that he wants and we’re looking to get that record.”

“The truth and the fact of the matter is before we can talk any superfight or any move in weight class or anything to that effect, Jon Jones wants to win his next fight at light heavyweight, he wants to break that record, he wants to own that record solely.  He wants to be considered the greatest light heavyweight of all time at this point,” Kawa stated.  “I already think he is the greatest light heavyweight of all time, record or no record.

Well, that pretty much puts him out of contention for that big November superfight Dana White was hoping for.
