Jones has smashed almost every record in the light heavyweight division. He holds several records, including the longest unbeaten streak in UFC history and the longest light heavyweight championship reign.

Despite the fact that Jones has done a great deal in his fighting career, he does not receive the credit he deserves for his accomplishments. This is due to Jones’ troubles outside of the octagon. ‘Bones’ has had numerous run-ins with the law and has had trouble with cooperating with the laws of the sport of MMA.

After his recent incident in Las Vegas, Jones has been sidelined from the UFC. In a recent report via KRQE news (Source: themaclifeofficial), Jon Jones spoke about what he feels about his return to the octagon as a heavyweight fighter.

 

“I feel like my speed and versatility is going to be the biggest difference … I’m used to guys that keep a really high pace, guys that do flying knees and head kicks. Heavyweights, they’re usually big punchers. I think I bring a versatility to the division that is going to be rare,” said Jones.

‘Bones’ is currently training to return to the octagon as a heavyweight fighter and is looking bigger than he has ever been in his recent pictures. ‘
