Jon Jones responds to criticism of his fitness

Former UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones has spoken to fans who were shocked by his physical appearance ahead of his heavyweight debut.

“It’s good that this is not a bodybuilding competition! Now I am strong and explosive, like a lion. I could focus on getting better, but the most important thing is that I weigh 250 pounds (113.4 kg) and still move like a light heavyweight, ”the American wrote on the social network, posting a photo of himself from a different angle.

Earlier, pictures of Jones from a photo shoot for the UFC 285 tournament appeared on the network, in which the most noticeable part of the body of the former best fighter of the strongest league in the world is his stomach hanging over the elastic band from his underpants.

Recall that in the main event of the organization’s next numbered event, which will be held on March 4 in Las Vegas, Jon Jones will try to win the vacant UFC heavyweight championship belt, and Frenchman Cyril Gan, who occupies the first line in the division, will compete with him.
