Jones makes UFC return against Adesanya

Dana White has claimed Jon Jones is ready to return to the UFC and has talked up a mega-fight with Israel Adesanya.

White revealed the conversation he had with Jones, saying he’s in a good place and set to make his comeback to the famed Octagon next year.

The UFC president also expressed his desire in booking Jones against fierce rival Adesanya.

Speaking to BT Sports, he said, “Jon Jones and I had the best conversation we’ve ever had about a week ago, and he’s ready.

“He’s ready to come back. His head’s in the right place and he and I are in a really good place.”

On Jones vs. Adesanya, White added: “That’s the fight I would love to see.

“Somebody asked me yesterday, ‘If you could make one fight in 2021, what would it be?’ That’s the fight. That’s my pick.”

Jones hasn’t fought since controversially outpointing Dominick Reyes at UFC 247 in February.

He has since vacated his UFC light-heavyweight title as he eyes a move to the heavyweight division.
