Smith, who has won three straight since moving up to 205 pounds, has not been shy about accusing Jones of doping in several interviews. But the topic of steroids was not discussed during an on-air confrontation following Jones’ win over Gustafsson at UFC 232. Jones instead bristled at the suggestion of Smith as an opponent and then indicated he would accept a fight. Smith suggested they meet in July for the UFC’s International Fight Week event.
Jones subsequently hinted a fight on multiple social media posts. Smith told MMAjunkie earlier Saturday the champ likely was angling for more money to face Cormier at heavyweight – or back him into a corner for UFC 235.
