When Johnson first announced his plans to return to the Octagon, the expectation was that he’d do so at heavyweight. If you’ve seen recent pics of Johnson you know that he’s absolutely massive, and he had talked about fighting at heavyweight. But, in a recent interview with Brendan Schaub, Johnson reported that if he thinks he can make the cut to light-heavyweight, he wants to finally battle Jones.

Well, Johnson’s comments made headlines throughout MMA, and they clearly got back to Jones. Recently the renowned fighter tweeted out this:

You better make sure you have that cardio together big fella @Anthony_Rumble

We’ve always been cool but I’ll be more than happy to choke you out if that’s what you’re looking for. @Anthony_Rumble
