Former UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones hasn’t fought since Feb. 2020, but appears to be close to returning to the octagon.
Jones relinquished the 205-pound championship in August 2020 and set his sights on transitioning to the heavyweight division to pursuit another divisional title. His heavyweight debut seems to be on the horizon after a long time waiting. He’s rumored to be facing former heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic, but the fight promotion hasn’t officially announced the matchup.
On Thursday, Jones posted a video hitting pads with his bare hands and said that he’s ‘feeling sharp.’
“Right now I’m exactly where I need to be, I’m excited to see myself in a few months when things actually start to ramp up. Feeling sharp across the board,” Jones wrote.
