Jon Jones, the former UFC light heavyweight champion, has been snapped in new UFC fight gear for the first time in three years ahead of his UFC 285 clash with Ciryl Gane.
The 33-year-old American fighter, who is widely regarded as one of the greatest mixed martial artists of all time, has been out of action since July 2017 when he was stripped of his title and suspended for a doping violation.
Jones returned to the octagon in December 2018 and has since gone on to reclaim the light heavyweight title, defending it twice against Anthony Smith and Dominick Reyes.
Now, ahead of his upcoming fight with Gane, Jones has been snapped in new UFC fight gear for the first time in three years.
The new gear, which features a black and white design, was unveiled by the UFC on their official Instagram page.
The caption read: “Jon Jones is back in the Octagon and he’s ready to go. Get ready for #UFC285 with the new @ufc fight gear.”
The fight between Jones and Gane is set to take place on March 6 at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas.
Jones is the heavy favorite to win the fight, with the odds currently standing at -400 in his favor.
Gane, on the other hand, is a relative unknown in the UFC, having only fought twice in the promotion.
However, the Frenchman is undefeated in his MMA career and is a highly-touted prospect, so he will be looking to cause an upset against Jones.
It promises to be an intriguing fight and one that could have major implications for the light heavyweight division.
Jones is looking to extend his reign as champion and prove that he is still the best in the world, while Gane is looking to make a name for himself and prove that he belongs at the top of the division.
No matter who wins, it is sure to be an exciting fight and one that fans will be looking forward to.
