Did he quit the light heavyweight title?
On August 17, 2020, Jones shocked the UFC world by announcing that he would be stepping down from the UFC Light Heavyweight title.
“Bones” shocked fans Monday night when he suggested he could quit the UFC due to salary disputes with Dana White.
He quickly reversed his decision after a “really positive conversation” with the company and revealed he would move to heavyweights instead.
Jones tweeted, “I just had a very positive conversation with the UFC. Looks like there will be negotiations for my next heavyweight fight.
“The good news is, the process of gaining weight is beginning.”
Two-time champion Jones had hinted at a rise in the heavyweight division following Saturday’s blockbuster trilogy between Stipe Miocic and his former rival Cormier.
After watching Miocic claim a unanimous decision victory, Jones tweeted, “World Heavyweight Championships, I’ll see you very soon. Victorious.”
What did he say about a rematch with Dominick Reyes?
Jones was asked about Twitter by a fan that if Dominick Reyes were to become the next light heavyweight champion, “Bones” would then consider a rematch.
He responded by taking a trip down memory lane, recalling that he won an equally controversial decision in his first fight with Alexander Gustafsson, but ended his Swedish rival when they met in a rematch of the years later.
The 33-year-old simply replied: “It reminds me of when I fought Gus, Did good against me become really famous and time could prove that he was like the others.”
How many times has Jones been suspended by the UFC?
Jones has been suspended from the UFC three times.
In 2015, he was suspended indefinitely in connection with a hit and run in New Mexico, where he was accused of hitting a pregnant woman before fleeing the scene.
A year later, Jones was suspended for a year for a doping violation.
In August 2017, it was announced that Jones had been reported for another potential doping violation when he tested positive for Turinavol, an anabolic steroid.
He was suspended for 15 months.
