Coleman thinks 'Bones' Jones could be next

Mark Coleman vs. Stephan BonnarSherdog.com

Mark Coleman obviously can take care of himself, but at 44, he should be wary of Jon Jones.

It probably didn't take a lot of convincing for Mark Coleman to give one of his first post-UFC 100 interviews to Ohio State University's U Weekly. The 44-year-old OSU alum, who is coming off a win over Stephan Bonnar on July 11, told the publication that 21-year-old Jon "Bones" Jones could be next.

"The name has been popping up quite a bit," Coleman said. "I've been getting Chuck Liddell and Tito Ortiz, but at the same time I've been hearing that it could be Jon Jones. I would prefer the oldest of the outfit there."

The UFC should agree. At 44, Coleman should be leery of fighting a solid wrestler half his age. Against the older Ortiz or Liddell, the bout's betting line probably would be significantly closer.
