Just two months after being arrested for domestic violence against his fiancé, Jon Jones announced that he has been booked by FURY Pro Grappling to face off against undefeated Bellator heavyweight, Jake Hager.
Jones was eager to make the announcement via Twitter, “Breaking News!! I’m excited to announce I’ll be competing for the number one grappling organization in the world, Fury Grappling! December 9th I’ll be in New Jersey competing against WWE superstar and undefeated Bellator heavyweight Jack Swagger.”
However, Hager responded with his own post, saying that no contract has been discussed or signed,
“First of all it’s @AEWonTNT and undefeated @BellatorMMA heavyweight Jake Hager, secondly no terms have been discussed or contract signed. We can talk if terms are right.”
Jones has been working on his move up to the Heavyweight division and is expected to make his first appearance in 2022. This match could give a taste of what we might expect of a heavier Jon Jones.
