For many fans, Jon Jones is one of the all-time greats in the history of the UFC. Since early last year, Jones made it clear he has a target in mind for his UFC return as well. Jones has also been on a mission to get paid.
For the past few months, Jon Jones stated on numerous occasions that he plans on making his MMA return this year. Not only that, Jon Jones even plans on winning a championship in 2022.
Jon Jones was banned from using the Jackson Wink MMA gym by coach Mike Winkeljohn. This was due to him getting arrested in Las Vegas last year after his domestic violence case.
While speaking on his YouTube channel, Chael Sonnen seemingly confirmed rumors that Jon Jones has a renewed motivation in the gym ahead of his UFC return.
“When I hear inside scoop from teammates or coaches or people that are there in the room with Jon Jones, and this is after he left Jackson Wink, which means between his last fight and this one, guys it’s through the roof what they are saying about this guy. These rumors about Jones..it’s unbelieveable the way that people that are there and watching him train go.”
Dana White also previously stated that UFC has already had talks for Jon Jones vs Stipe Miocic once Jones returns. We will have to see when Jon Jones will make his return to the Octagon this year.
