Jon Jones is widely regarded as one of the best fighters of all time. He had been out since defeating Dominick Reyes at UFC 247 on February 8, 2020.

After his victory over Reyes, Jones announced his plans to move up from the light heavyweight division to the heavyweight division.

Jones was scheduled to make his heavyweight debut in a bout for the vacant heavyweight title against one of the top-rated fighters, Ciryl Gane.

Jones re-established himself as the greatest fighter of all time after winning the UFC heavyweight title with a spectacular first-round submission win over Gane at UFC 285.

Jones won the title by guillotine-choking Gane. Jones dominated from the start, and the fight was entirely one-sided.

Jon's comeback was quite profitable for the company. According to reports, the event has become the fourth-highest-grossing event in UFC history in terms of live gate.

Dana White disclosed the gate revenue figure to be around $12.15 million during the post-fight press conference.

After his victory, Jones wasted no time calling out Stipe Miocic. "Stipe Miocic, I hope you’re training, my guy. You’re the greatest heavyweight of all time. That’s what I want. I want you real bad." Jones said.
