Updated UFC Rankings: Jon Jones Re-Enters P4P And 205lb Class, Adesanya Didn’t Make It To Top 5

Take A Look At What The Latest UFC Rankings Field Looks Like

The former UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones escaped four-year suspension from USADA in September for flunking the drug test at UFC 214 last July. Jones has officially re-entered both Pound-for-Pound and 205-pound class.

He’s currently scheduled to clash against his formal rival Alexander Gustafsson in the main headliner of UFC 232 in December for a vacant 205-pound title. That showdown will be a true test of Jones ability, and he has to prove to his fans that he’s still the greatest of all time. If ‘Bones’ wins this fight, his stock will go high. UFC 232 tickets go on sale this Friday it starts from $140 to $1,255 for the floor and cage-side seats.

After last week win at UFC 230, Jacare Souza sits at no.3 in the middleweight ranking meanwhile Israel Adesanya who also scores a win over Derek Brunson didn’t crack a spot in the top 5.
