There has been no word on when former UFC champion Jon Jones would return to the Octagon. Some people have started to question whether or not “Bones” would ever return.
Even former light heavyweight champions like Jan Blachowicz are giving up hope. The Polish national, now 38 years old, provided his reasoning in a recent interview with Middle Easy’s James Lynch.
“I don’t believe Jon Jones will be back to fighting anymore. I think he’s afraid to lose much, that he will do everything to not come back.
“There was a time when he dominated completely our division. After couple of years, everybody catch his level, and it was hard for him to do on the fight. Like Dominick Reyes, it was a very, very close fight.”
“Everybody that fought against him was a close fight. So I think that he start feeling that he’s not so good anymore. That we’re growing and getting to his level, and finally, someone will stop him.
“I think the reason that he don’t want to fight is just that he is afraid to lose.”
