For many fans, Jon Jones is one of the best UFC stars of all time. Since last year, Jon Jones had a clear goal in mind when it comes to his UFC return. Jones has also been on a mission to get the kind of pay that he truly deserves.
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 becoming a champion in 2022.
While speaking to The Schmo, Urijah Faber talked about Jon Jones vs Stipe Miocic’s potential fight. Faber gave huge props to Jones for looking like a beast ahead of his return.
“I mean, Jon Jones has been looking like a beast at that weight. He’s an amazing athlete, he’s arguably the best fighter of all time – give or take the controversies [or] whatever you think about that. You know, if he’s as big as he seems to be on his posts and whatnot, I think weighing 250 [pounds] or something. Yeah, we got to go with Jonny ‘Bones’ Jones on that one.”
White even previously stated that UFC has already had talks for Jon Jones vs Stipe Miocic once Jones returns. It remains to be seen whether the fight will end up happening or not.
