UFC 285 on TV: UK time, live stream, TV and fight card
Jon Jones returns to the Octagon for the first time in over three years when he faces Ciryl Gane as the headline showdown at UFC 285.
The 35-year-old effectively took an indefinite hiatus from the sport following his last victory over Dominick Reyes in February 2020 – meaning Jones is yet to fight since the COVID pandemic.
Jones has been a key player in the Light Heavyweight division with a 26-1 winning record, though he boasts a controversial reputation having served three drug bans throughout his rollercoaster career.

Gane is the No.1 ranked heavyweight contender and will be determined to make his mark against another high-profile opponent.
