In Prep for His Move to Heavyweight, Jon Jones is Lifting Serious Weight

Jon Jones is lifting some heavy weight in prep for heavy weight debut.

In order to become the greatest you must aim to accomplish great feats. Israel Adesanya recently had his chance to secure greatness by winning a second UFC world title. Unfortunately he fell short of the accomplishment that Daniel Cormier, Conor McGregor, Henry Cejudo and Amanda Nunes were able to accomplish. Now former light heavyweight champion Jon Jones is will look to do the same by moving to the heavyweight division. In order to be prepared for the move up, Jones is lifting some pretty serious weight.

After dominating the light heavyweight division, Jon Jones is looking to prove he is truly the GOAT. But moving up to heavyweight will require more than not cutting the pounds to the light heavyweight division. It will require a great deal of quality strength work and building some solid mass. As such, Jones has been taking his weight training to the next level.
