Jon Jones, who is resuming his career in two weeks after a three-year hiatus, will not need championship rounds in a title fight with Cyril Gan, says former UFC double champion Henry Cejudo.
“I believe with all my heart that Jon Jones will not only beat Cyril Gan, but submit him or knock him out,” the Triple Champion stated in a video posted on his YouTube channel. “I don’t think this fight will last more than three rounds”
At the same time, Cejudo is convinced that if Jones finishes Ghana, he must not only move Islam Makhachev, but also remove Alexander Volkanovski from the first line of the P4P UFC rating.
“If he beats Cyril Gan, he should be top 3, maybe top 2. If he stops Cyril Gan, Jon Jones should take the top spot in the pound-for-pound rankings. Why do I say so? Because of his resume. It is flawless. Look at what he has already done in martial arts, and now he is going to move up to heavyweight and take the most significant championship belt of all.
Recall that the fight for the vacant UFC heavyweight title between Jon Jones and Cyril Gan will be the main event of the UFC 285 tournament, which will be held on March 4 in Las Vegas.
