Jon Jones questions Ciryl Gane's hunger for MMA ahead of UFC 285 return: "He doesn't believe he'll be here for a long time"

Josh Evanoff - February 27, 2023

Former UFC light-heavyweight champion Jon Jones believes Ciryl Gane doesn’t have the same hunger as him. ‘Bones’ is slated to make his long-awaited heavyweight debut later this week against ‘Bon Gamin’. The pair will headline UFC 285, in what will be Jones’ first bout in over three years. Ahead of his return, the former champion is the underdog, unfamiliar territory for him.

Coach Fernand Lopez discusses Ciryl Gane’s recent claims about being lazy between camps: “That’s how Ciryl used to be”

Lewis Simpson - February 23, 2023

Last week, surprisingly, Ciryl Gane revealed he was ‘lazy’ when it came to training, but his coach Fernand Lopez assures fans that was an older version of ‘Bon Gamin’. Gane is set for his second crack at UFC heavyweight gold. The Frenchman will welcome Jon Jones back to competition on March 4th at UFC 285 for the vacant heavyweight title. Ahead of the showdown in Las Vegas, Gane admitted his approach to training was far from professional and has hardly trained since knocking out Tai Tuivasa in Paris last September.

The undercard to UFC 285 continues to build, as women’s flyweight champion Valentina Shevchenko has been added. ‘Bullet’ has been out of action since her clash with Taila Santos at UFC 275 last June. In that outing, the Brazilian brought the fight to the champion, who was a heavy favorite. Despite early success from Santos, Shevchenko rallied in the championship rounds.

Jon Jones doesn't plan on talking trash to Ciryl Gane in the build to UFC 285 clash: "I'm past the point of talking sh*t"

Josh Evanoff - January 16, 2023

Former UFC light-heavyweight champion Jon Jones feels he’s beyond the trash talk at this point. ‘Bones’ has been out of action since a controversial decision victory over Dominick Reyes at UFC 247 in February 2020. Following the win, Jones relinquished his light-heavyweight championship. The goal was for the former titleholder to move to heavyweight, likely for a date with Francis Ngannou.
