Jon Jones has officially vacated his light heavyweight title and is embarking on a journey to rule the heavyweight division.

Jones (26-1) took to social media on Monday to express interest in a fight against either current heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic.

According to the former Light heavyweight champion, Miocic should get the next shot over UFC heavyweight contender Francis Ngannou, who has won four in a row but lost to Miocic in 2018.

“Stipe doesn’t want to fight Francis again because the first fight really wasn’t close,” Jones wrote on Twitter. “Looking at it from Stipe’s point of view, fighting Francis again is definitely more of a lose situation than win. Stipe asked for a new challenge, why not fight the light heavyweight [Greatest of All Time]? Besides we’re way closer in size. What’s more exciting than that? By the time he heals up my body weight should be right where it needs to be. This fight lines up perfectly.

Miocic is coming off a title defense against Daniel Cormier earlier this month.
