Jon Jones looks like he is serious about moving up to heavyweight.

After vacating the light heavyweight championship, Jones has been hitting the weights in an effort to add muscle to his frame for future matchups against bigger opponents.

This week, Jones took to social media to show off his new and improved physique.

According to Jones, he has bulked up to 240 pounds.

“240lbs never felt so good, should be ready in the next few months #AndTheNew,” he wrote on social media.

UFC president Dana White previously said that he would not rule out an immediate title shot at heavyweight for Jones and it certainly looks like the former champ will be ready.

“Last time we talked to Jon Jones, Jon Jones said he was going to take some time and do his things he’s into right now and take some time, and when there’s a right fight, he’ll give us a call,” White said, as transcribed by MMAjunkie.com.

But who could we see Jones take on when he makes his heavyweight debut?

The UFC boss did not give a clear answer, but he did not rule out an immediate shot at the heavyweight championship because of the resume Jones has built throughout his career and run at the top of the 205-pound division.

“I mean realistically, Jon Jones is undefeated,” White said. “He’s never been beat. Mazzagatti’s been out of the game for years. I don’t mean to keep beating this guy up, but you know. Jon Jones is undefeated.”

White made the comments as a reference to The Ultimate Fighter: Heavyweights Finale where Jones suffered the only loss of his career — a disqualification for 12-6 elbows that gave Matt Hamill the win. Steve Mazzagatti was the ref in the controversial bout.

As for who Jones will face, we will have to wait and see.
