Jon Jones Has An Eye On Johnny Walker

UFC light heavyweight Johnny Walker, made it three wins out of three inside the UFC, at UFC 235. With all three wins coming via explosively quick finishes. His three fights inside the Octagon have lasted less than three minutes in total.

With three quick finishes under his belt, the Brazilian has put the rest of the UFC light heavyweight division on notice. And even the champion Jon Jones, has an eye on the 26 year old, who trains out of Phuket, Thailand. As he told The Mac Life.

“Johnny Walker is somebody that I’m very aware of. I know I’m gonna be fighting him sooner or later. And I just appreciate his energy. He seems like a nice guy. He just radiates his happiness and his positivity, and it’s refreshing. He seems like the type of guy I’d go out and have a beer with. He’s cool. He seems cool… until we fight. And then after I beat him, he’ll be cool again.”

And obviously it goes without saying that Walker has his eyes on Jones, as he himself said just a few days ago. Which you can watch here.

Jones is expected to defend his UFC light heavyweight title against Thiago Silva next. But if Walker, who has said he wants to fight Alexander Gustafsson at UFC Stockholm on June 1st, keeps on the way he’s going, it’s only a matter of time before we see that match up.
