Speaking to TMZ, Dana White expressed his interest in seeing Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones face Middleweight Interim Champion Israel Adesanya in the very near future when asked if he had interest in the fight:
“I do…but…Israel needs to focus on (Robert Whittaker) he’s fighting a bad dude. He needs to worry about that fight.”
But can he “really” hang with Jon Jones?
“If he beats Robert Whittaker…he’s a very very bad guy. A guy Jones needs to take serious.”
Jones is coming off of a close split-decision win over contender Thiago Santos at UFC 239. Adesanya is slated to unify titles against Robert Whittaker at UFC 243 on October 6th in Australia.
