UFC Books Jon Jones For Upcoming New York Date — Details

Former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones has been sitting on the sidelines waiting for his suspension stemming from the “UFC 200” fight-week to end. The failed drug tests sidelined Jones for quite some time, but he remained on the training mats along with his teammates and has not missed a beat when it came to keeping his social media profiles active.

Now, “Bones” will finally be making his first official appearance under the UFC banner this Friday at Buffalo, New York.

Jon Jones will be speaking to the media for the first time since failing his “UFC 200” drug tests last year, which forced him off one of the biggest cards in company history with “UFC 200”. Anderson Silva served as a last-minute replacement for Jones, and Daniel Cormier would go on to smother Silva for the win.

Cormier will be defending his championship this weekend at “UFC 210” against Anthony “Rumble” Johnson and it’s possible that Jones will be revealed as the next challenger to the throne.
