Georges St-Pierre on Jon Jones: ‘He’s solid like a rock’

One of the greatest fighters of all time has weighed in on how he thinks Jon Jones will do at heavyweight.

Georges St-Pierre was asked what he thought of Jones working towards a heavyweight title.

“I’ve seen it on the red carpet when I got inducted into the [UFC] Hall of Fame. I took a picture and I put my arm around him, I was like, ‘Man, he’s solid like a rock.’ He’s huge,” St-Pierre said (h/t MMA Fighting). “Jon Jones, he’s solid like a rock, he looked huge.”

Jones has been working towards making his debut, despite having no fight or the first opponent booked.

“It looked like he put the weight at the right place,” St-Pierre said. “I can’t wait. I’m a fan of Jon Jones, I like to see him fight. I can’t wait to see him come back. A lot of people are like, ‘Yeah, he was out for a long time.’ He was out for a long time, but he’s Jon Jones, you know what I mean? Don’t forget that he’s Jon Jones. He’s arguably the best fighter of all-time too. He can make a comeback and I think he’s going to be successful when he does.”

At press time it was expected Jones would face either UFC heavyweight champion Francis Ngannou or Curtis Blaydes if the title shot doesn’t come to fruition by early next year.
