Former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones is returning to action this spring in an expected rematch with Daniel Cormier, but he doesn’t think he has a lot of fights left for him in the division.

Interacting with some fans on Twitter Sunday night, Jones talked about his plans at light heavyweight, and just whom he expects to fight during that stretch.

Penick’s Analysis: I’m not sure if Gustafsson’s going to work back to another title fight to be that third and final matchup, but if Jones gets through Cormier once again, the Johnson fight is surely coming next. The division doesn’t have the most packed list of contenders, so Jones moving to heavyweight still seems a realistic and viable eventuality. Regardless, getting him back in for the first of those potential three is the way to go.
