Hell of a Morning: Jones vs. Gane is the most exciting fight on the UFC Calendar?


The countdown is on to UFC 285 and the return of Jon Jones, as he makes his heavyweight debut against Ciryl Gane for the UFC heavyweight title, which was vacated by Francis Ngannou when he left the promotion. There are so many stories and unanswered questions surrounding Jones’ return fight after a three year layoff. Is Saturday’s main fight the most compelling and captivating fight on UFC’s schedule?
