On the other hand, current No. 1 Ciryl Gane, who lost the belt to Francis Ngannou, will be looking to make this opportunity count this time and secure the gold again. He has entertained fans with impressive knockouts of Tai Tuivasa, Derrick Lewis and former UFC heavyweight champion Junior Dos Santos. He would like to give another memorable performance this time.
What has been said?
Jones: “I know how to win fights. That’s why I’m here. I don’t think about losing. I’ve never lost. I don’t think about losing. My mind is completely focused on the win.”
“I’ve been ready for a while. I trained to fight against Francis Ngannou, I trained to fight against Stipe Miocic, and now Ciryl Gane is the guy I’m fighting.”
“It’s been a long time coming. This is three years of training twice a day with no reward. That was frustrating at times. But I stayed faithful to my goals and dreams, and I’m here. I’ve made it. I am excited, and I am here for the challenge.”
“I respect that Ciryl took this fight. I like what he stands for. He carries himself like a gentleman. I know he has a lot to gain and not much to lose, but this is a huge step up in competition for him, in my opinion.”
“This is the fight to watch. This is the way MMA is headed. Two lean heavyweights that could have played football or basketball. It’s going to be two elite athletes going at it.”
