Jon Jones' MMA career and highlights
Jones was a stand-out wrestler during high school. He even got his moniker, ?Bones? during his school days, owing to his slim frame.?
On August 9, 2008, Jon Jones made his UFC debut at UFC 87 facing Andre Gusm?o, at the short notice of two weeks. In over a year and a quarter, Jones placed himself as an undefeated fighter with a perfect record of 9-0, until he fought Matt Hamil in December 2009, who handed Jones his first-ever loss.?
However, that served as the one and only loss ?Bones? has, and that too due to disqualification. Two years later, Jones faced Mauricio ?Shogun? Rua as a replacement for his training partner Rashad Evans who couldn?t fight on the scheduled mark owing to his knee injury. Jones defeated Rua by TKO in 3rd round and became the youngest-ever UFC champion at the age of 23.
However, Jon Jones? run in the UFC hasn?t been all glamorous and smooth. He has been suspended several times, given his controversial life outside the octagon. Jones was expected to defend his title in May 2015 against Anthony Johnson at UFC 187 but was stripped of his title on April 28 in connection to his hit-and-run case where he allegedly crashed a pregnant woman and fled away from the scene.?
Then, in 2016, when his rematch with Daniel Cormier was supposed to take place at UFC 200, Jones was removed from the bout by USADA for a potential doping violation and was suspended for one year. Two days after the announcement, Jones was stripped from his interim title, too.
The Daniel Cormier rematch took place in 2017 instead, where Jon Jones defeated Cormier and re-captured the UFC Light Heavyweight Title. However, that win was short-lived, as USADA flagged Jones with a doping violation. This forced the decision to be converted to no contest. And as a result, the title was handed back to Daniel Cormier.
Jon Jones then made a return in 2018 against Alexander Gustafsson for the vacant UFC Light Heavyweight Championship and won the bout via a 3rd round TKO. And from 2018 to 2020, Jones had his good run in the UFC, having 4 fights and winning all of them, until he got into a disagreement with Dana White in 2020.
After a disagreement with White, Jon Jones vacated the UFC Light Heavyweight Championship and expressed his desire to move up to the heavyweight division and fight Francis Ngannou. However, according to Dana White, Jones asked for a sum on par with what Deontay Wilder made for his rematch with Tyson Fury, suggesting a paycheck of around $25 million-$30 million. After all the back and forth and a hiatus of over 3 years, Jon Jones made his heavyweight debut at UFC 285 against Ciryl Gane for the vacant title.
