Despite not having fought since January and being involved in a felony hit and run case, former UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones looks to be in phenomenal shape. Jones took to his Instagram account show off the results of his new weight training regime and in doing so he may have leaked when and where his return will take place.
Aside from his physical appearance what is of note about his post it the date he mentions. The UFC has made no official announcement about Jones’ return. Though it is highly believed that he will face current light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier upon his return. April 23rd has been speculated to be the UFC’s attempt to host an event in New York City at Madison Square Garden.
MMA is still not sanctioned in the state of New York so those plans are just tentative at the moment. Jones is a native of New Jersey so there is a stong possibility the UFC could host an event there as they have had done several times in the past.
