Jon Jones has revealed the date of his fight!

After a turbulent start of fall, which included entering the UFC Hall of Fame and then just a few hours later an arrest and suspicion of domestic violence, Jon Jones has found his peace. In fact, he had to go through some other things, most notably being kicked out of Jackson Winkeljohn Hall, of which he had been a member almost from the beginning of his career.

When he had sorted everything out again and returned to regular training, Jones started thinking about returning to the Octagon again. The ambitions are still the same, an attack on the heavyweight title, which he believes the UFC will enable him and will not cause any problems.

So there is an idea of ​​a date on which this return and his first fight after February 2020 will happen. "I'm looking towards a fight sometime in April, probably at a show in Madison Square Garden or a completely different date, probably July, when International Fight Week is taking place."

"Those are the two dates I'm looking at right now. I think it will all depend on who's gonna win the fight between Francis Ngannou and Cyril Gane in January." "Once they do that, we will start from there, "Jones said during a guest appearance on KRQE television, briefly commenting on his form: "In that regard, I think I'm in incredible shape.

I'm excited to represent Albuquerque, even though I recently joined the Fight Ready team in Arizona. I'm going to represent both teams at once."

Explanation

It is probably necessary to explain the latter. Shortly after being kicked out of the gym, Jones joined Jackson’s MMA Acoma Hall, a program that belongs to the Greg Jackson system and is located in their old hall, the one where Jones started his UFC career.

He expressed his enthusiasm at the time, only to change direction a few days later and, at the invitation of coach Santino Defranco and Henry Cejudo, join the Fight Ready team, whose hall is located in aforementioned Arizona.

There, the former two-time UFC champion dedicated himself to working with him, with whom Jones "clicked" very well from the beginning. "Henry Cejudo is great. He's a family-oriented man. He loves martial arts with all his heart, but he's also a man of God.

We have that in common and it's a very good thing." "I really like the way he took me under his wing. and showed me a different view of our whole game. Not just martial arts, but the game of life. We are talking about happiness and being realistic with emotions.

Cejudo's way of training is there to make you the best man you can be, "Jon gave a comment on his work with Cejudo Despite leaving his main hall, Jones continued to work with coaches Greg Jackson and Brandon Gibson and they will be with him when he embarks on the Octagon again.
