‘Too freakin’ easy!’ Twitter reacts to Jon Jones running through Ciryl Gane at UFC 285

*** HIGHLIGHTS! Watch Jones Make History, Submit Gane Easily To Win Title ***

Jon Jones is back ... and he’s back with a vengeance.

There were big questions on which Jones we’d see at UFC 285: the beast who dominated the Light Heavyweight division for years or the lackadaisical “Bones” who plodded through his last three decision wins. The Jones we saw last night (Sat., March 4, 2023) in Las Vegas, Nevada, was re-energized and on a mission: he took down Ciryl Gane down with ease and submitted him just two minutes into their much-hyped Heavyweight title fight.

Gane didn’t do much other than kick Jones in the groin. After that, he was quickly grounded and pressed up against the cage. Jones pushed his opponent into the fence and mounted him. He cinched up a guillotine choke and tapped “Bon Gamin.”

It was extremely impressive ... and almost anti-climactic. The general response from the Twitter community (including UFC fighters watching with interest) was that things ended before they even got started. That didn’t stop them from proclaiming Jones the G.O.A.T. once more.

Take a look at all the discourse from Jones’ quick win over Gane:
