Jon Jones record
The black belt in gaidojutsu and former Ufc light-Hw champ Jon Jones entered this fight with a professional mma record of 26-1-0 (62% finishing rate) but he is not ranked as he hasn’t fought since 2020 (it is Jones’ debut in the heavyweight division).
Jones’ only loss was, in reality, a disqualification suffered against Matt Hamill in 2009 due to multiple “12-6 elbows” (strike brought from a high position toward the floor), since then he has collected 17 victories and one no-contest, against Daniel Cormier in 2017 (Jones defeated ‘DC’ via KO but then he tested positive for turinabol so the result was overturned in a NC, Jon Jones vs Daniel Cormier I); after this match he has won four times beating Thiago Santos (Jon Jones vs Thiago Santos) and Dominick Reyes in his last two (Jon Jones vs Dominick Reyes).
But if you want to watch Jones’s best fights, here are two legendary bouts:
- Jon Jones vs Mauricio Shogun Rua, the Users’ mma Fights of the Year 2011,
- Jon Jones vs Lyoto Machida, rated with four stars.
Ciryl Gane record
His opponent, the former interim UFC Hw champion Ciryl Gane, has an official record of 11-1-0 (73% finishing rate) and he entered as the No.2 in the heavyweight division.
He fought twice last year losing to current #1 Hw Francis Ngannou (Francis Ngannou vs Ciryl Gane) and beating Tai Tuivasa (Ciryl Gane vs Tai Tuivasa).
