‘Not Going to Allow Anyone to Rush Me’- Jon Jones Gives an Update on Heavyweight Progress

Former UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones took to social media and went over fan questions about his past and future. ‘Bones’ occasionally takes out the time to answer questions laid out by fans to provide clarity on his position. Now more than ever, there are a lot of unanswered questions about Jon Jones’ future in the UFC.

He’s been involved in a rather public spat with the UFC brass over his contact and pay that has repeatedly made headlines. Furthermore, Jones also parted ways with long-time management company, First Round management in favor of pro boxing promoter Richard Schaefer. Since signing with Schaefer, fans haven’t heard much from Jones, however, he’s finally provided clarity on his possible UFC return.

Jon Jones: On his own terms

The consensus GOAT has been slated to return to the UFC’s octagon as a heavyweight for a long time now. He’s bulked up in preparation for his heavyweight debut, however, fans still haven’t received news of a possible booking. Jones finally revealed that he would make a return, but at his own pace.

At the very least, fans now know that Jon Jones hasn’t abandoned the idea of a heavyweight move-up despite clashes with the UFC.

Once Jones made his stance clear, fans began asking questions about a recent interview provided by one of Jones’ former opponents. Earlier in the week, Anthony Smith grabbed headlines when he said that Jones had failed every drug test when they fought back at UFC 235. Given Jones’ checkered past, Smith’s comments sent fight fans into a frenzy.
