Jon Jones Clinches UFC Heavyweight Title with First-Round Submission of Ciryl Gane
In a stunning match at UFC 285, Jon Jones defeated Ciryl Gane in the first round to clinch the heavyweight title. Jones used his signature ground-and-pound style to take Gane down and secure a submission hold. The win marks Jones’ first title in the heavyweight division.
Earlier in the week, Jones received criticism from UFC commentator Joe Rogan, who labeled him the “absolute worst” after an interview in which Jones expressed his confidence in winning the fight. However, following his victory, Rogan changed his tune and praised Jones for his dominant performance.
In a pre-fight interview, Cody Garbrandt revealed that he almost pulled out of his fight due to a neck injury sustained on fight day. Despite the setback, Garbrandt went on to fight and believes he can still become a champion again.
Overall, UFC 285 proved to be an exciting and eventful night for fighting fans.
