UFC champ Jon Jones: Cain Velasquez is super fight worthy, Chris Weidman is not

The Light Heavyweight champ tells Inside MMA that he's more interested in a "super fight" with Heavyweight champ Cain Velasquez than in one with Middleweight champ Chris Weidman.

For most of 2011 and 2012 a possible "super fight" between UFC Light Heavyweight champ Jon Jones and then UFC Middleweight champ Anderson Silva was much discussed, especially by UFC president Dana White and web sites like Bloody Elbow.

Now that Silva has lost his belt talk has moved on.

In a video interview with Inside MMA Jon Jones says that doesn't feel that Chris Weidman, the new Middleweight champ, has a sufficiently high profile to merit a super fight against Jones.

Heavyweight champ Cain Velasquez on the other hand, he is super fight material according to Jones. Of course Cain is out with a shoulder injury for most of the coming year and Jones has a busy dance card with a UFC 172 bout against Glover Teixeira and if he wins that a possible rematch against Alexander Gustafsson and then possibly Daniel Cormier.

So what I'm saying here is, don't hold your breath waiting on a UFC super fight.
