A behind-the-scenes footage of Jon Jones learning for the first time that his shoulder injury would keep him out for almost a year is now circulating online.

Jones receives some heart-breaking news

The UFC’s new three-part, inside the UFC series on Roku revealed an interesting clip from a closed-door meeting between “Bones,” UFC president Dana White and UFC Chief Business Officer Hunter Campbell. In it, Jones was told by Campbell that his torn pectoral will see him undergoing surgery and recovering for 6 months to possibly a year.

As expected, Jones was stunned as he refused to hold back his emotions in front of White and Campbell.

Check out the clip below:

“I got the results. You’re out six months to a year,” Campbell told Jones. “You have to go have surgery.”

“You’re lying,” Jones replied in disbelief.

“I swear on my life. Full tear,” Campbell responded.

“I don’t want to cry in front of you two,” Jones said.

“I don’t want to cry in front of you two either,” White acknowledged.

Jones will still fight Miocic

Jones suffered his shoulder injury while training for his title fight with Stipe Miocic. While recovering, “Bones” suddenly got linked to a potential showdown with interim heavyweight champion Tom Aspinall and reigning light heavyweight champion Alex Pereira.

Though fans seem to be intrigued by the idea, White confirmed that Jones will just pick up where he left off and still face Miocic in his return.
