Well, UFC President Dana White agrees with that ideology especially when talking about their UFC light heavyweight champion pursuing a title at heavyweight.
Looking at the monsters that walk around in the heavyweight division, White knows that Jones would already be at a disadvantage, and he's hoping that if it ever does happen that he's more than prepared for a big move like that.
Check out what White had to say about Jones potential move to heavyweight and if it's a smart move or not:
Jon Jones has dominated his weight class and the top fighters in his division like no fighter since Anderson Silva.
Silva's 5 year unbeaten streak has defined him as possibly the greatest fighter in UFC history. But at 37-years of age, Silva's talked openly about the end of his career getting closer and closer.
