Heck of a Morning: What are the expectations for Jon Jones when he returns at UFC 285?


Jon Jones will return to the octagon, in a brand new division, when he fights Ciryl Gane for the vacant UFC heavyweight title in the main event of UFC 285 on March 4. What are his expectations after more than three years since his last fight?

Heck of a Morning’s new edition features Mike Heck, MMA Fighting, discussing Jones’ upcoming return and his appeal to the MMA community. Heck also states that he hopes to bury the hatchet against long-time opponent Daniel Cormier. Additionally, listener questions include the fallout of Islam Makhachev vs. Alexander Volkanovski at UFC 284, if the UFC should run it right back, the IV rules that have been in play since 2019, Bo Nickal’s future ahead of his octagon debut at UFC 285 against Jamie Pickett, low-key fights on the books that aren’t getting enough attention, and more.
