UFC 285 Jones vs Gane fight preview

Jon Jones has been one of the most successful but also most controversial UFC fighters.

He has held the light heavyweight title for the longest amount of time of any fighter, and has also been suspended 3 times.

UFC 285


Now after a lay-off over over 3 years, Jones will return to the octagon.

His last win was in 2020 and he vacated the light heavyweight championship belt in August 2020, citing issues with the UFC over salary negotiation and his desire to compete as a heavyweight.

Now he gets his chance in that weight class for the vacant UFC heavyweight title.

It's vacant because the former champion, Francis Ngannou, also left the UFC over salary negotiations.

Jones will come up against former interim heavyweight champion Gane, who has lost only 1 fight in his entire MMA career.

The loss came against Ngannou in UFC 270 where Ngannou claimed the title.

While there's no doubting Jones' ability, it's hard to know if his time away has affected his performance and whether the other variables such as his age and different weight division will lessen his dominance.

Gane has also come back a stronger fighter after his loss to Ngannou.

We reckon that the fight will go the distance and only be decided on points.
