“Bones” has not competed since UFC 214 in August of 2017, when he defeated current promotional “champ champ” Daniel Cormier via knockout.

That victory was later changed to a no-contest, this after it was revealed that Jon Jones had failed a drug test with USADA.

During Jon Jones most recent absence, a pair of light heavyweight contenders have emerged in the form of Dominick Reyes and Anthony Smith.

Smith improved his UFC light heavyweight record to 3-0 at tonight’s UFC event in Moncton, defeating former division title challenger Volkan Oezdemir via third-round submission.

Prior to his victory over “No Time”, “Lionheart” was coming off of back-to-back first-round knockout victories over former UFC champions Rashad Evans and Shogun Rua.

As for Dominick Reyes (10-0 MMA), the undefeated light heavyweight contender is coming off a win over Ovince Saint Preux in his most recent octagon appearance at UFC 229.

Shortly following tonight’s UFC Moncton main event, Jon Jones took to Twitter where he shared his assessment of the contest.

“Pretty impressive night of fights.” – Jon Jones

The former light heavyweight champion, Jones, was then asked by a fan what he thought of Anthony Smith’s performance.

“It was OK.” – Jon Jones replied.

Anthony Smith recently stated that he believes himself to be the “only real threat” for Jon Jones at 205-pounds.
