Jon Jones: It’s crazy to consider Ciryl Gane ‘the most technical kickboxer I’ve ever faced’

Jon Jones thinks Ciryl Gane is being overhyped.

Jones (26-1 MMA, 20-1 UFC) faces Gane (11-1 MMA, 8-1 UFC) for the vacant heavyweight title in Saturday’s UFC 285 headliner at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. The main card airs on pay-per-view following prelims on ESPN and early prelims on ESPN+.

Gane is being dubbed as one of Jones’ toughest tests due to his speed, agility and technique in the standup game. However, Jones says he’s faced better on the feet and pointed to his split decision win over Thiago Santos at UFC 239.

He also took aim at Gane’s past opposition – including his lone loss to former heavyweight champion Francis Ngannou at UFC 270, where he was outwrestled in a decision loss.
