Good afternoon, Nation. After a much-needed vacation, it feels good to be back.

As a matter of fact, that’s probably a sentiment being shared by former light heavyweight champ Jon Jones right about now, what with him recently being reinstated into the UFC and all. As you might’ve noticed via the Instagram post above, it appears that Jones has spent his involuntary off-time following the Alistair Overeem diet of horse meat, push-ups, the meat of horses, and even more push-ups. Seriously, dude looks YOKED.

But if the idea of Jon Jones 2.0 (UberJones?) wasn’t already scary enough, the troubled G.O.A.T also took to Instagram last night to announce the date that he will return to the octagon.


“Started powerlifting June 1, 2015. In just about seven months of training four days a week, my body has made a complete transformation,” wrote Jones.

“Off season 2013 vs off season 2015. Five more months to prepare for this win. I’ll be sure to be at my best April 23rd #NewLevels.”


April 23rd is, of course, the tentatively selected date for UFC 198, which will supposedly be held at Madison Square Garden in New York City. But being that MMA is still outlawed in New York state, there are a lot of questions surrounding the likelihood of this venue/Jones’ return to say the very least.

Meanwhile, I have received an exclusive report that current light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier has in fact shat himself after seeing the above photo of UberJones, as has Fabricio Werdum, Cain Velasquez, and every driver in the Rio Rancho area. April 23rd can’t come soon enough.

Not sure if that's really "scary" unless he decides to dispose of all opponents in 2 minutes.
That physique is impressive at the beach but in normal cases does not bode well for MMA. Carrying that much muscle uses a lot of oxygen.

Yeah but he's not "swole" and super huge and with just huge masses of muscle. He just looks more cut and has a better overall physique.
In fact, he doesn't really look anything like a "power lifter". If he didn't specify that that's how he got like this and I just had to guess, I would've said Cross fit or P90X or something. Lol

Probably. However, now he can do as much coke as a heavyweight.

I don't think he's any bigger weight-wise.
It sounds stupid to say this because he's one of the best fighters of all time, but he actually looks like a pro fighter is supposed to look now. He was a little soft before, and now he looks like most other upper-echelon UFC fighters (not named Daniel Cormier, of course). His physique now much more closely resembles the GSP's and Robbie Lawler's and Chris Weidman's and Jose Aldo's of the world.
