With that being said, Covington is not so confident that Jones will ever return to MMA, let alone at heavyweight.

“He’s done, he doesn’t have the right scientist, the right juice to do anymore. He knows he’s done. He’s trying to get one more cash grab and hope that it’s so much money that he doesn’t have to do anything but I don’t think he’s ever fighting again. I just don’t see it.”
