The former UFC light-heavyweight champion of the world Jon Jones has officially re-entered the UFC’s rankings at both light-heavyweight and pound-for-pound.
Jon Jones is back and as the time goes on, the athlete who became the youngest fighter to ever win a UFC title will again take precedence over the often troubled man who eventually lost it.
Facing Alexander Gustafsson at UFC 232 will be a true test of his ability to re-establish himself into the upper-echelons of the sport.
Gus is easily the best light-heavyweight on the planet not-named Jon Jones or Daniel Cormier so if ‘Bones’ can get the job done, his stock will immediately skyrocket once more.
Jones has been re-introduced into both the light-heavyweight and pound-for-pound rankings, coming in at #1 at 205lbs and #3 P4P.
If he can overcome the challenge that faces him in late December, expect the name of Daniel Cormier to be knocked off the top on both lists.
2018 will for sure end with a bang but boy, are we in for an interesting 2019.
