Devastating news shook the world of the UFC in the early hours of Wednesday (25).
According to the organization’s president, Dana White, Jon Jones suffered a severe injury during training and will be sidelined for eight months. This will result in a change in the main event of UFC 295, which will now feature an interim heavyweight championship bout.
“Hey, everyone, we’re here again. Jon Jones was training last night and suffered an injury. He was practicing wrestling and tore the pectoral tendon that connects to the bone. It will be an eight-month period, and he will need surgery. He’s out,” Dana White said in a video posted on his social media showing the moment of Jones’s injury.
Subsequently, the UFC president announced that the main event of UFC 295, scheduled for November 11, will now be a fight between Jiri Procházka and Alex Poatan.
The fight that will replace the originally planned Jon Jones vs. Stipe Miocic, which was supposed to be the main event, will be between Sergei Pavlovich and Tom Aspinall, with the interim heavyweight title on the line.
