Former UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones was reinstated by the promotion on Friday, clearing his way for a return to the Octagon.
While no timetable was announced for that return, “Bones” did post a message via social media after the news:
I am grateful for the opportunity to resume my career and I am excited to show how much I’ve grown as a person outside of the octagon. It took me losing almost everything I had worked for to realize how much I had. I am blessed and humbled by the continued support of the MMA community and I can’t thank my fans enough for their unwavering support through my ups and downs. This marks the beginning of a new chapter in my life and my career and let me assure you, the best is yet to come.
