Jon Jones asked the UFC for a HW fight once he beats Rashad and Dan Henderson but the UFC said no: "I actually asked Dana and Lorenzo, could I take a fight for the fans at the end of 2012. I figured beating Henderson and Rashad, there would be a period where we'd figure out who I'm going to fight next, and during that period, at the end of 2012, I asked to fight a heavyweight -- a Top 10 heavyweight."
His attitude after this loss only improved, and it wasn't but a few hours after the loss that Kimbo was in Roy's face asking him to TEACH him how to escape the move that "Big Country" used against him. Roy, like the leader he is, obliged. My respect meter is off the charts for both of these guys.
