Jon Jones has long been fighting on the Internet, not the octagon. He promised to return to fighting, move up to heavyweight and take the belt, but everything turns out only virtually. Last time he said he would be back in December against Stipe Miocic. It is clear that in December he will not return and there will be no fight. There is information that it was Stipe who failed the negotiations.
Jon Jones has to remind himself and now hints that he will return in the spring, namely on March 5 at UFC 285 in Las Vegas.
The layouts are not very extensive. If Francis Ngannou fully recovers from knee surgery, which was exactly a year ago, he could welcome Jon Jones to the heavyweight division, giving him a shot at the title. By the way, to be honest, the chance is extremely small. Ngannou is simply too big for Jones and will literally take him down with his punch. John understands this very well and simply speculates with such rumors. This fight is definitely not worth it.
The UFC is considering a more realistic option – a fight with Curtis Blaydes. He is on a winning streak of three wins in a row, but he can’t fight the tops. Curtis has a powerful punch and can easily knock out Jon Jones, who has not fought for a long time.
All this can happen, but our opinion is that Jon Jones will not return anywhere and will not fight again!
