Jon Jones will be making his heavyweight debut on Saturday night at UFC 285 and his body has completely transformed.

On Wednesday, Jones revealed that he decided to move up to heavyweight from light heavyweight because he felt it was tougher and tougher to cut weight.

“I feel great, I feel like a stronger version of myself, I’m not super lean, I don’t have a six-pack like I used to…I like it, I get to eat what I want, I feel good, life is good.”

Jones went on to say that he weighs about 250 pounds right now after weighing 267 pounds just a few months ago.

“A few months ago I got up to 267 but I felt a little more bloated, I didn’t like my endurance at that weight, I plan on competing at around 245 and 250…

“I’m fighting Cyril Gane, I don’t think I need to be overly big at this event”

The UFC released the first shirtless pic of Jones ahead of UFC 285 and he looks much bigger than he did when he was at light heavyweight.

It doesn’t seem like Jones believes Gane is going to be a threat for him on Saturday night at heavyweight.
