As Luke Rockhold gets set to compete in the UFC’s light-heavyweight division, the former middleweight champ has delivered a warning to the reigning, 205 king, Jon Jones.

Rockhold confirmed last year that he intends to move up to light-heavyweight. After a rematch with Chris Weidman fell through last November, as a result of Rockhold being injured, the former champ reported his time at 185 is done.

More recently, Rockhold spoke with TMZ Sports, and while doing so he said the following about himself and Jones:

“I’m a different man at this weight, with the power behind me. I’m moving up to get after him. So, that’s what I’m here for.”

You can watch the complete segment below.

Rockhold hasn’t fought now since February, 2018, when he was knocked out by Yoel Romero.
