Don’t miss UFC 285 as Jon Jones makes his heavyweight debut against Ciryl Gane to determine a new UFC heavyweight champion. With a similarly exciting undercard, this event promises to be a night of furious action and enjoyment for all fight fans. The event is scheduled for Sunday, March 5 at 8:30 AM GMT+5:30 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, United States.
The highly anticipated UFC 285 event is scheduled to crown a new heavyweight champion, adding to the sport’s already great legacy. The return of Jon Jones, widely regarded as the greatest fighter in mixed martial arts history, after a three-year absence has sparked much enthusiasm. Jones’s move to heavyweight adds to the fight’s complexity, as he attempts to build on his dominant run as the UFC light heavyweight champion.
Nonetheless, Ciryl Gane should not be overlooked because he poses a severe danger to Jones’ legacy. Gane has an impressive 11-1 record and has only lost in a competitive decision to former champion Francis Ngannou.
Meanwhile, the vacancy of the UFC 285 heavyweight title due to Ngannou’s departure has created further buzz around the event, as the winner of the Jones-Gane matchup will be a likely candidate to fill the position.
The undercard boasts equally compelling matchups, with Matuesz Gamrot and Jalin Turner set to face off in a pivotal lightweight contest. The undefeated prospect, Shavkat Rakhmonov, takes on Geoff Neal in a key welterweight contest, adding to the unpredictability of the event. Bo Nickal’s much-anticipated debut against Jamie Pickett in the opening PPV match only adds to the excitement surrounding the event.
