Jon Jones is undeniably one of the greatest fighters to step into the octagon, as his impressive records and stats speak volumes about his skills. However, he recently suffered an injury just two weeks before the upcoming pay-per-view event, UFC 295 where he was set to fight against Stipe Miocic. And now as he will miss the fight now fans are eager to know when he might make his return. Let’s delve into the details and see the expected date of him coming back.

Expected time of Jon Jones’ return

UFC recently released the UFC 295 trailer, but just before that, Jon Jones withdrew himself from the much-awaited fight against Stipe Miocic. Jones, who was supposed to face Miocic in UFC 295 in New York, called off the match due to a torn pectoral tendon sustained during training.


UFC President Dana White announced Jon Jones’s injury by sharing a video on his social media handle. The video also included footage of the moment when the UFC Champ got injured. During the video, White himself stated that the heavyweight champion will take at least 8 months to make his comeback inside the octagon. Consequently, we can expect him to come back next year in the second half of the year.

As soon as the announcement was made, Jones’ fans took to Twitter to share how disheartened they felt. Many also wished “Bones” a speedy recovery. Fans were also concerned about his comeback and how long it’s going to take Jones to return to the octagon.

Meanwhile, instead of Jones vs Miocic, the co-main event of Alex Pereira vs Jiri Prochakza will be the main event now, and Tom Aspinall will fight Sergei Pavlovich for the interim heavyweight championship. While there have been numerous fights on the line, Jones missing the event will certainly cause significant damage to the PPV card.
