It has been widely rumoured that Jon Jones is on a comeback trail from tha USADA wilderness that he found himself in after UFC 214- a notion that has only been fueled by the fact that he’s re-entered the USADA testing pool recently.

As of now, the informed word in MMA circles is that Jones will rematch Alexander Gustafsson for the UFC Light Heavyweight Title, to headline Madison Square Garden at UFC 230 which still finds itself without a main event.

Daniel Cormier, who now holds both the UFC Light heavyweight and the Heavyweight Titles, will probably be required to relinquish the former to make way for Jones’ return.

In this climate of uncertainty, UFC Light Heavyweight contender Ilir Latifi (15-5-0) has also thrown his hat in the ring to try and get the Jones fight.


While it certainly will be an interesting fight given the clash of styles, and indeed body types, do you want to see Jones fight Latifi if he manages to make a comeback in 2018?

Or would you prefer to see him rematch Alexander Gustafsson, as is currently being rumoured?
