Em preparação para estrear nos pesados, Jon Jones aparece com 113kg e impressiona: ‘Estou pronto para aceitar qualquer desafio’; confira


Former UFC light heavyweight champion and one of the top names in the history of the promotion, Jon Jones has been preparing for a new part of his career. At the end of last year, the fighter said he would move up to heavyweight and has been training and gaining muscle mass with an eye focused on the challenge.

Jones recently posted on social media to share his current weight of 250 pounds, about 113 kg. Previously, the American was a light heavyweight (up to 93kg) – 20 kilos less than he is now. The heavyweight limit is 120kg. “I feel ready to accept all challenges, and this is the first time in my career that I can say that. Finally, I have the right size to face anyone ”, posted the former champion on Twitter, who still has no date or opponent for his debut in the new division.

“No, I don’t worry about cardio (physical endurance), because I keep myself at a high level of preparation, a light heavyweight level. Some of these guys (heavyweights) may even be stronger than me, but they can’t keep up with me. I was able to overcome all light heavyweights and I will do the same at heavyweight. This is called heart, ”added Jones, in response to a fan.

At 33 years old and with a record of 26 victories and only one loss, Jones moves up in weight class and more than ever, he will relay on his movement and technique. This is will be his main defense against the big knockout power of the heavyweights. Without a fight since February 2020, when he defeated Dominick Reyes at UFC 247, “Bones” went on a collision course with Ultimate, threatened not to act for the organization anymore and gave up the light heavyweight title, which currently belongs to Polish Jan Blachowicz. Gradually, however, he was redoing his plans and the tendency is to resume his career in 2021, now fighting for the heavyweight category.
