It appears that Jon Jones’ transition to the heavyweight division is going well, as evidenced by recent training footage. With his highly-anticipated debut in the division set to take place at UFC 285, against Ciryl Gane, the stakes couldn’t be higher. The vacant UFC Heavyweight Championship will be on the line, making it a must-see event for MMA fans worldwide.

In spite of the added weight and power of the heavyweight division, Jones appears to be adapting well to the new environment. He shows impressive striking and grappling skills in the training footage, indicating he’ll be a heavyweight force.

However, Gane presents a unique challenge, with his precision striking and impressive athleticism. The French striker’s 10-0 record is a testament to his skill and makes him a dangerous opponent for anyone in the heavyweight division.

All in all, UFC 285 promises to be an epic clash between two of the UFC’s most exciting fighters. With the vacant UFC Heavyweight Championship up for grabs, the pressure is on for both fighters to deliver a memorable performance. It’s a must-watch event for any MMA fan looking to witness history in the making.

Three years have elapsed since Jones graced the Octagon with his enigmatic presence, leaving fight enthusiasts clamoring for a glimpse of the storied fighter. In his last foray at UFC 247, Jones weathered an unyielding barrage of ferocious attacks from Dominick Reyes, emerging victorious and retaining his light heavyweight championship. It must be noted that both the Reyes bout and Jones’ previous clash with Thiago Santos at UFC 239, saw the seasoned fighter engaging in a more tempered, reserved approach, which was decidedly atypical of his customary style.

However, the latest footage of Jones’ rigorous training regimen in preparation for the heavyweight division is nothing short of awe-inspiring.

Newly shared footage on Twitter showcases Jon Jones moving swiftly despite his visibly increased weight. The clip shows Jones beginning with a powerful low kick, and then continuing to advance forward, ultimately steamrolling his training partner, UFC heavyweight Walt Harris, and deftly taking him down to the mat.

Jones’ improvements in striking and speed are not the only things catching the eye of fans and analysts alike. His ability to take down a heavyweight like Harris with ease is a testament to his strength and technique.

Which do you think Jon Jones will do better against Ciryl Gane?
