Jon Jones vows to ‘run through the UFC heavyweight division like dominoes’ after incredible body transformation following ‘a year of hard work’
- Jon Jones has been working tirelessly to transform into a natural heavyweight
- Former light-heavyweight champion plans on dominating in higher division
- He tweeted: ‘It has taken a year and a lot of hard work’ to transform his body
- Jones wants to fight Francis Ngannou but is embroiled in pay row with UFC
Jon Jones has pledged to ‘run through the UFC heavyweights’ now that he has almost completed his remarkable body transformation.
‘Bones’ vacated his light-heavyweight title and has spent the last year adding weight to his frame to better compete with the likes of Stipe Miocic and Francis Ngannou.
He took to Twitter, writing: ‘It’s taken a year, it’s been a lot of hard work. But I have to credit all my trainers.

‘We definitely have game this weight the right way. Should have a rock solid six pack this time next month.’
The difference in images of Jones a year ago in comparison with the ones he has shared on social media recently is stark.
The American has spent plenty of time in the weights room but also ensured he is remaining finely tuned in the cardio department.
And it seems Jones is now feeling bullish about his chances of dominating the heavyweight division as he did the weight category below.
He wrote: ‘Ran through the light heavyweight division on talent, about to run through the heavyweight division like dominoes off pure hard work.’
But despite Jones’ remarkable transformation, he is still yet to agree a deal with the UFC for his heavyweight debut.
There has been enormous clamour from himself and fans alike to set up a meeting with new champion Ngannou in what would be a pay-per-view bonanza.
But the Albuquerque fighter remains at loggerheads with his paymasters over how much he wants to step into the octagon.

UFC president Dana White claimed Jones wants £20million but the fighter hit back, saying he has no idea where that number came from.
The promotion are understood to be moving forward with Ngannou vs Derrick Lewis in a rematch that will have far lower mass appeal.
It remains to be seen which side will compromise at the negotiating table and it could yet take some time for the newly transformed Jones to enter the cage again.
