Jon Jones-Ciryl Gane Official For UFC 285 In March

Jon Jones’ Octagon return is now official.

Jones will face Ciryl Gane in the main event of UFC 285 on March 4. The bout will be for the vacant heavyweight title live from Las Vegas and airing on ESPN+ pay-per-view.

Tickets for the event are set to go on sale this week.

Jones (26-1, fighting out of Albuquerque, N.M.) returns to the Octagon for the first time since February 2020 with his sights set on cementing himself as the greatest of all time.

Considered by many to be the No. 1 pound-for-pound fighter in all of MMA, he holds the UFC records for most title fight wins (14), most light heavyweight wins (20) and the longest light heavyweight win streak (13).

Former interim UFC heavyweight champion Gane (11-1, fighting out of Paris, France) intends to make the most of his second shot at gold by delivering a career-defining performance.

A high-level striker, Gane has entertained fans with impressive knockouts of Tai Tuivasa, Derrick Lewis and former UFC heavyweight champion Junior Dos Santos.
