Jon Jones recaptured the light heavyweight championship with this victory over Alexander Gustafsson at UFC 232 in December of 2018. Jones next faces undefeated Dominick Reyes in the main event of UFC 247 on Saturday, February 8 in Houston.
Jones returned to the Octagon at UFC 232 after having sat out for nearly a year-and-a-half because of UFC Anti-Doping Policy violation, which saw him stripped of the title which he had just won back from Daniel Cormier.
As you can see by watching the rematch with Gustafsson, Jones didn’t lose a step during his downtime. In fact, he may have gotten better, as he took Gustafsson out, unlike their first meeting.
