Middleweight champion Chris Weidman recently stated that he’d be interested in a superfight with Jon Jones, but the current light-heavyweight kingpin tells the InsideMMA show on AXS TV that he doesn’t think Weidman isn’t ready yet.

“A lot of people are starting to mention Chris Weidman’s name and I, and you know, in order for it to be a superfight I think Chris Weidman needs to get his name a little bit bigger and prove himself against some other world champion,” Jones said.

Jones did have another suggestion for a possible superfight showdown, however.

“I think Cain Velasquez is the only guy that would be considered a superfight,” Jones stated.

Jones has talked about moving up to heavyweight before, and that’s certainly a fight everyone would love to see, but don’t expect to see it any time soon.

According to Inside MMA, Jones only plans to fight twice in 2014 – with the first coming against Glover Teixeira at UFC 172 in April, and the second in his sights being a rematch with Alexander Gustafsson.

Check out Jones comments for yourselves in the video below.
