Jon Jones clarifies why Ciryl Gane submitted so rapidly at UFC 285, stating, “I could hear his vertebrae cracking.”

Jon Jones has offered an explanation for why his opponent, Ciryl Gane, tapped out so rapidly during their recent UFC 285 bout. The former light heavyweight champion made his much-anticipated return to the octagon after a three-year hiatus, this time competing in the heavyweight division. Despite being the favorite to win, Jones secured the victory with a guillotine choke that Gane submitted to quickly. Some fans, including retired UFC star Demetrious Johnson, questioned Gane’s lack of defense during the bout. In a recent Sports Illustrated interview, Jones revealed that he heard Gane’s spine cracking during the first submission attempt, providing a plausible reason for his opponent’s quick tap-out. Jones also shared that he didn’t expect the match to end so soon, but was pleased with the outcome nonetheless, stating that fighting is not just a job, but his life’s purpose and destiny.
