Jon Jones may not have booked a fight for his heavyweight debut, but that hasn’t stopped him from making huge leaps in his physical transformation.
According to UFC President Dana White, “Bones” was demanding $ 30 million for a proposed super fight with Ngannu, and therefore the promotion decided to order “Predator” in a rematch with Derrick Lewis for his first attempt at title defense.
While tensions between Jon Jones and the UFC appear to have boiled over in recent days, the former light heavyweight promotion leader was not interested in entertaining his employers with the latest offer to fight former heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic.
Even though his next Octagon appearance was in the air, Jones continued to make huge strides in his physical transformation into a heavyweight.
As shown in his latest Instagram post, the great pound for pound not only looks like a true heavyweight but also an absolute behemoth.
“If you’re the worst bastard in the room, you’re probably training with the wrong people,” John Jones captioned the photos.
Jones (26-1 MMA) has not competed since winning a unanimous decision over Dominic Reyes in the UFC 247 main event in February 2020.
‘Bones’ will now likely have to sit and wait for the winner of Ngannou vs.Lewis II later this summer.
