Following UFC 232, Anthony Smith asked Jon Jones what he’s doing this July, but “Lionheart” has let it be known he’s down to fight “Bones” whenever.
After Jones reclaimed the 205 title, by taking out Alexander Gustafsson, the vaunted fighter appeared on the post-fight FOX show. Smith was on the broadcast panel, and he proceeded to challenge Jones to a fight in July (before things got really tense).
Well since then, Smith tweeted out the comment below, after Jones told a fan that he’s not interested in waiting until July for his next bout.
I just thought that sounded fun. I think we can set the games aside, Jon. You and I both know I need a date and location. You name it, I’ll be there. https://t.co/8aO9MiwFtp

Will Jones – Smith happen? If Jones doesn’t end up fighting Daniel Cormier again, “Lionheart” could very well be next.
