Heck of a Morning: Is Jon Jones in play for Alex Pereira with UFC 303 win?

Alex Pereira came through big for the UFC once again heading into Saturday’s UFC 303 pay-per-view event. With the star power, the accolades, having a potential golden ticket with the UFC—along with the promotion owing him a couple of favors—if Pereira beats Jiri Prochazka for a second time, could a fight with heavyweight champ Jon Jones be on the table?

On an all-new edition of Heck of a Morning, MMA Fighting’s Mike Heck discusses the rarefied air Pereira is in right now with the UFC, his options with a win on Saturday, and even being in a great position if he loses to Prochazka. Additionally, listener questions include Kelvin Gastelum’s latest weight snafu ahead of UFC Saudi Arabia, Conor McGregor’s fighting future, Brian Ortega teasing a lightweight move ahead of his UFC 303 bout with Diego Lopes, Paige VanZant going to Power Slap, and more.

You can listen live to Heck of a Morning Tuesdays and Thursdays at 10 a.m. ET on the MMA Fighting Twitter Spaces.
