Who y'all got?
Im riding with Jones but wouldnt be surprised if Gane beats him. Jones has been so inactive and to fight a guy like Gane right out the gate can bite him on the ass. Gotta give Jones credit for taking this fight
Jones will take him down with ease to avoid anything on the feet in a boring fight.
Apparently Francis Ngannou is also a free agent now. What the actual fark.
No offense to the quality of matchup this potentially is, but it's pretty anti climatic to me, and interim titles are stupid.
There's one champion, his name is Ngannou, and him vs Jones was the bigger and more exciting fight to make, imo.
Gonna take some time to adjust my expectations into appreciating this fight.
Correction... it's not for an interim title, it's for the actual championship, and Ngannou has been released from the UFC.
The 'undisputed' title will be fought between a guy whose never fought at heavy, and a guy who got soundly beaten by a one legged ngannou, in the shadow of ngannous release.
Literally the opposite of undisputed lol.
UFC is starting to look like boxing with their shameless and bogus maneuverings.
Francis was released? What? No wonder Jones is coming back now, i think he was trying to avoid ngannou.
Correction Ngannou rejected a contract offer, and has wished to be released from the UFC.
Considering Jones' inactivity and unprovenness in the heavyweight division, why did he just get a chance for the title?
Imo this is an easy win for Gane who is a great fighter. Jon Jones hasn't fought for OVER 3 YRS NOW and looked ordinary in his last few fights against Smith/Santos and LOST against Reyes who has since been stomped on himself.
Since the inception of USADA Jon Jones has looked fairly ordinary or has popped for ped's in basically every fight he has had. FACTS.
I will be shocked if Jon Jones wins this fight and not surprised at all win or lose that he test positive AGAIN and that will be the end of him.
It's been proven that without ped's Jon Jones excellence recedes back to the level of the other fighters. Now he is fighting an outstanding fighter in Gane at Ganes weight class and presumably without his ped's and on the decline.
I see nothing but a Gane win here.
Said it before, it's been for years that I find UFC just as fixed as the pro wrestling.
It took Jones so much time to go to the heavyweight just to avoid Ngannou as the latter is stronger while they're both on PEDs. I've no doubt that the judges will win Jones another victory, so Gane has only one option - to knock him out.
Jon Jones is evens (Bet365, UK) to defeat Gane. Can't turn down those odds.
