Jon Jones says he will return to the octagon ‘when I’m good and ready’ – MMA Root

It has been an interesting year and a half for Jon Jones.

UFC no. 1 pound male pound fighter defended his light heavyweight title against Dominick Reyes at UFC 247.

He then resigned from the title later in the year with the intention of climbing the heavyweight division to try and add another belt to the long list of mixed martial arts sports.

But when it appeared that he was going to make the jump, everything was thrown to the extreme.

There was a public altercation between Jones and UFC President Dana White on the night of UFC 260, when Francis Nganu lost to Stipe Miocic for the heavyweight title.

From there, the narrative appeared as if no. Second-placed heavyweight contender Derrick Lewis was the next Ngannou’s first opponent.

Jones even parted ways with longtime Malki coaches and First Round Management Abraham Kaua and hired long-time boxing promoter Richard Schaefer to be his adviser.

Despite the change in management, it still does not appear that Jones was approaching a possible affair with Ngannu.

However, according to Jones, he is in no hurry to return to the octagon and that he does not want to rush the process of making the right transition from light heavyweight to heavyweight.

While Dana White has said that Ngannou-Lewis II is set to take place at some point this summer, it is clear that the possible overlap between Jon Jones and Ngannou is a fight that is much more desirable than the fans.

Not to mention that it will probably generate significantly more revenue for the offer.

Jones, 33, has not competed since February 2020 and since his appearance, it does not look like he will fight any time soon.
