UFC 285 promo released featuring return of Jon Jones
Jon Jones is only a few weeks away from returning to the octagon.
On Monday, the UFC released an official promo video for Jones’ comeback on March 4 at UFC 285. In the main event, Jones will make his heavyweight debut against Cyril Gein, who will have the vacant title on the line.
Watch the video above.
Jones has not fought since his successful title defense against Dominick Reyes at UFC 247 in February 2020. The two-time undisputed light heavyweight champion has been out of action due to legal issues outside the cage, a contract dispute with the UFC. and adjustments necessary to move to a new weight category.
The promo revolves around the question of how Jones, considered by many to be one of the greatest fighters of all time, will perform at heavyweight after such a long hiatus. It also features Gein and the flyweight title fight between weight class queen Valentina Shevchenko and Alexa Grasso.
UFC 285 takes place on March 4 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas and is streamed exclusively on ESPN+ pay-per-view.
