After a move up in weight and three years away from the Octagon, absolutely nothing has changed.Jones defeated Ciryl Gane with a guillotine choke at 2 minutes, 4 seconds of the first round Saturday in the main event of UFC 285 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. Jones is now the UFC heavyweight champion after owning the light heavyweight division for years. Jones was already regarded as the greatest MMA fighter. This victory? It left zero debate.Frankly, Jones made the whole thing look easy. He took Gane down, got him in a seated position against the cage and locked in the choke. It was unorthodox; Gane seemed safe. But Jones put on the squeeze and Gane had to tap.The UFC heavyweight title was vacated by former champion Francis Ngannou, who left the UFC as a free agent earlier this year.Jones’ win sets up a fight with Stipe Miocic, the most successful heavyweight fighter in UFC history and a two-time champion.Jones (27-1, 1 NC) owns UFC records for longest unbeaten streak (19), victories in title fights (15) and title defenses (11, tied with Demetrious Johnson). The New York native, who lives and trains in Albuquerque, New Mexico, last fought in February 2020 -- a win over Dominick Reyes in defense of the 205-pound title. Jones, 35, was also the youngest fighter to win a UFC title (23 years old) in 2011.Gane (11-2) was coming off a third-round knockout of Tai Tuivasa in September. The France native has won eight of his nine UFC fights. Gane, 32, has just one career loss, a unanimous decision defeat against Ngannou for the UFC heavyweight title in January 2022 at UFC 270.
