Tai Tuivasa wants to 'knock out' Jon Jones' head

Tai Tuivasa is gearing up to take on Ciryl Gane in a historic event on Saturday, but the heavyweight is already looking to the future.

During UFC Paris Media Day, Towasa was asked about former light heavyweight champion Jon Jones’ much-anticipated heavyweight debut.

“Jon Jones is the goat. He’s one of the greatest fights of all time. We all know that,” Tuivasa said (h/t MMA Junkie). “But as a heavyweight, no one really knows. I’m sure he’s still Jon Jones. He’s talented, and he’s got great skills. But heavyweight is a different league, we don’t know. We Will have to wait and see.”

Despite his obvious respect for one of the greatest fighters of all time, he wanted to test his skills against him.

“I would love to fight him. I’ve said it before: That’s why I do it,” he said. “One day, when I’m wrapping up the whole fighting gig, I want to say I’m fighting this guy and that guy — the best. I don’t want to come out (in the sport), I don’t have a chance to play my best. So I Would love to fight Jon and I’d like to knock his head off. That would be cool.”
