Jon Jones has a couple of options for his next title defense.

Dominick Reyes just had the best win of his career over former UFC middleweight champion Chris Weidman. Johnnie Walker has been smashing people in seconds, and either he or Corey Anderson, who has a beef with Jones, could walk out of UFC 244 as a front runner.

Then, a rematch with Thiago Santos could get attention, with Jones getting a split decision over him earlier this year. Or even Anthony Smith, who maintains he has learned the secret to beating Jones after spending 25 minutes in the Octagon with him.

And yet… none appear to be grabbing the light heavyweight champion’s interest.

Jones took to his social media earlier today to give something of a state of address. While he did throw a barb towards Reyes, it seems Jones has his eyes on bigger names, bigger fights and… well, bigger men.
