Jon Jones is making his heavyweight debut this week at UFC 285 against Ciryl Gane. Attending a press event to promote his fight, Jones verbally destroyed Gane and Francis Ngannou to showcase his confidence heading into the heavyweight championship clash against the Frenchman.

Jon Jones is returning to the Octagon after three years. There is cause for concern about Jones potentially having ring rust due to inactivity. But Jones has always been a fighter who overcomes the toughest challenges. He is currently training with Henry Cejudo for the fight and looks to claim the UFC heavyweight title.

Jones said on the media day:

Ciryl Gane can't handle it. I feel like Ciryl is the most incomplete fighter in the Top 5 right now.

These direct shots indicate how Ciryl’s grappling weakness led to his loss at UFC 270 against Francis Ngannou. Unsurprisingly, Jones is talking serious trash ahead of his fight against Gane. He appears supremely confident that at UFC 285, he will become the new heavyweight champion of the UFC.

Ciryl Gane, meanwhile, is coming off a victory over Tai Tuivasa, where he was in danger of being knocked out but fought back harder to earn the stoppage win at UFC Paris. It appears to be seen if Gane has improved his takedown defense, as Jones would utilize his effective wrestling to stop Gane.  

Jon Jones’s confidence once left biggest rival Daniel Cormier speechless

Previously, Jon Jones had verbal dominance against Daniel Cormier before their second fight. Their rivalry is among the greatest in the UFC, and Jones’s supreme confidence once left Cormier speechless.

It was evident from the first time he fought Daniel Cormier at UFC 182. He took down the Olympic-level wrestler multiple times in their first match. The trash talk reached an all-time high in the lead-up to their second fight when Jones challenged Cormier to take him down five times in five rounds, and stated that if he couldn’t, all of the training would be a waste of his life. All Cormier could do was remain silent.

It appears to be seen if Jones can replicate his success in the light heavyweight division in the division of the biggest hitters. Elsewhere, if Gane can beat Jon Jones by any chance, he will create a massive upset for sure.
