Jon Jones: I will donate $100k to charity if any light heavyweight gets six title defenses

New, comments

“First light heavyweight to win six championships in a row, I’ll pay $100,000 to whatever charity of their liking.”

With Jon Jones officially vacating his UFC light heavyweight title, the pound-for-pound king has made an offer to the rest of the division.

‘Bones’ says he will gladly donate $100,000 to charity if any of his fellow light heavyweights can defend the title six times in a row.

“First light heavyweight to win six championships in a row, I’ll pay $100,000 to whatever charity of their liking. I’ll be waiting,” Jones posted on Twitter earlier this week.

Jones has defended his title eleven times in total but the JacksonWink product is confident that no one is ever going to come close to breaking his record.

“Was going to challenge a light heavyweight to beat my world championship record but we all know that’s probably not happening in this lifetime,” he posted in a follow-up tweet.

With Jones officially out of the light heavyweight title picture, it’s expected that Dominick Reyes and Jan Blachowicz will fight for the vacant championship at UFC 253 on Sept. 26.

Jones is still listed as champ in the UFC’s official light heavyweight rankings but the 33-year-old is is planning to move up to heavyweight to challenge the winner of the proposed heavyweight title bout between Stipe Miocic (C) and Francis Ngannou.
