Johnny Walker in a recent interview with MMA Junkie, stated he’s been dreaming to fight Jon Jones his entire career, and hopes he gets the shot by the end of this year.
Here’s what he said:
“A fight against Jon Jones is very important for me, because I watch his fights before I started training, before I know what I want from my life. This is part of my history. This is like a dream for me. I want a fight against him.”
“As much as I can have more experience, it’s better for me. I’m ready. Maybe top five is good. Maybe two more fights before Jones. Maybe Jones will be my Christmas gift.”Johnny Walker talking to MMA Junkie
Winner of Dana White’s contender series, Johnny Walker, is currently on a 3 fight winning streak in the UFC and has won all three fights via knockout in the very first round. Some predict he is the antidote to Jon Jones.
Does he get the fight by the end of this year? Only time will tell.
