Jones was pretty outspoken during the recent Stipe Miocic-Daniel Cormier heavyweight title fight, as Miocic reclaimed his belt with a finish. Jones and Cormier, of course, have had one of the longest-running feuds in MMA history.

The last time the 32-year-old Jones fought was in July when he scored a decision victory and successful title defense vs. Thiag Santos at UFC 239. He is now 25-1 with a no-contest, including 16 wins via either knockout or submission.
Jones did have a battery charge from this past July, with the trial set for later this month. He paid a fee for failing to show up for a bond arraignment for the case, which states he choked, kissed and touched a female against her will.
