If you've had any doubts about Jon Jones' commitment to heavyweight, forget about them. He's all in.
On Wednesday, the former UFC light heavyweight champion shared photos on social media highlighting his physical transformation as he prepares to, in his mind, solidify his status as the MMA GOAT.

Since relinquishing the UFC light heavyweight title last year, Jones (25-1 MMA, 20-1 UFC) has been hard at work for several months trying to add muscle mass to his lanky frame. Whatever he's been doing, mission accomplished. He looks ready to fight the biggest and baddest.
Of course, since Jones never has fought while this heavy, it'll be interesting to see how he performs - which an opponent and date for his heavyweight debut have yet to be determined. Whenever it happens this year, though, Jones says he's feeling pretty good at the moment.
I feel ready to take on any challenge, this is the first time in my career that I can say that. I finally have the size to be ready for anyone
No I'm not worried about cardio, I hold myself to a very high standard,A light heavyweight standard. Some of these guys may be stronger, but they can't possibly push as hard as I can. I've been able to outwork literally every LHW, i'll do the same at heavy.. It's called heart
Can't wait to see it.
