Jon Jones may be sidelined at the moment while he sorts out his USADA suspension from a positive test in the weeks leading up UFC 200, but ‘Bones’ is training hard regardless.
The former light heavyweight champion posted an Instagram video of him hitting the mitts, and Jones looks better than ever. ‘Bones’ was stripped of the belt following a hit-and-run accident in Albuquerque, but picked up the interim belt after beating Ovince Saint Preux back at UFC 197.
Jones was scheduled to rematch Daniel Cormier at UFC 200, but tested positive during a USADA drug test and was scrapped from the card, with Anderson Silva stepping in to take on DC in his place.
The former undisputed 205 pound kingpin has had an unfortunate history as of late. Prior to the failed test for UFC 202 and the hit-and-run, Jones had tested positive for cocaine metabolites back in 2015 following his title defense over Daniel Cormier at UFC 182. Before that, ‘Bones’ crashed his car while under the influence and was eventually caught driving with a suspended license.
In spite of all the setbacks, Jones’ Instagram post at the very least shows that the former undisputed champ is still training hard while sorting out his business with USADA and is looking sharp doing so.
How do you think ‘Bones’ looks in his most recent Instagram post? Do you expect to see Jones back in the Octagon soon? Sound off in the comments section, PENN Nation!
