Jon Jones Forced to Withdraw from UFC 295 Due to Shoulder Injury

In a surprising turn of events, Jon Jones, the reigning UFC heavyweight champion, has been sidelined from UFC 295. A shoulder injury requiring surgery has put his highly anticipated bout against former UFC 120-kilogram champion Stipe Miocic on hold.

With Jones out of the picture, the new main event for the gala in New York will feature a clash for the light heavyweight championship between Alex Pereira and Jiri Prochazka. Additionally, the evening will showcase a contest for the interim UFC heavyweight championship between Tom Aspinall and Sergei Pavlovich.

Dana White, the CEO of the organization, confirmed this shift in the event lineup and shared a video of Jones sustaining his injury during training. White stated that Jones would face an extensive eight-month recovery and rehabilitation period post-surgery.

Jon Jones, with an impressive record of 27-1, 1 NC in MMA, secured the heavyweight title in his most recent fight, submitting Ciryl Gane in the first round at UFC 285 in March. This marked his triumphant return to the octagon after a hiatus of over three years. Jones previously held sway over the UFC light heavyweight division, successfully defending his title a remarkable eleven times. His illustrious career includes victories over notable names like Daniel Cormier, Alexander Gustafsson, Glover Teixeira, and Mauricio Rua, with 17 of his wins coming by way of finishes. Jones stands as the undisputed No. 1 fighter across all UFC weight classes in the rankings.
