Jon Jones doesn’t care what you think of his current physique.

On Saturday night, Jones will make his heavyweight debut against Ciryl Gane for the UFC heavyweight title.

Despite gaining a ton of weight, Jones says he feels as explosive as ever in his new weight class.

“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.”

On Wednesday, the UFC released a shirtless photo of Jones and he immediately got trolled by the Internet of his new physique.

Jones saw people mocking him over his weight and fired back on his Instagram stories.

“Good thing it’s not a bodybuilding competition!” “I have the strength and explosiveness of a lion right now.

I can focus on leaning out better for my next fight. Most importantly, I’m 250 [pounds], still moving like a light heavyweight.”
