Former two-time UFC Light Heavyweight Champion, Jon Jones has confirmed that he won’t be there in person to witness UFC 270’s heavyweight title fight.

The former UFC light heavyweight king is gearing up for his heavyweight debut and the winner of Saturday's title unification bout between undisputed champion Francis Nganou and interim champion Cyril Gain.

Jones (26-1 MMA, 20-1 UFC) told ESPN, he doesn't wanna disturb anyone out there and he is excited to get the job done when it's time.

“Right now I’m on a perfect training routine, don’t wanna disturb it for anything. No need to flatter these big boys, excited to get the job done when it’s time," he said.

He is a former two-time UFC Light Heavyweight Champion, holding the title from March 2011 to April 2015 and from December 2018 to August 2020. Jones also held the interim UFC Light Heavyweight Championship in 2016.

Jones last fought against Dominick Reyes on February 8, 2020 in the main event of UFC 247. Jones won the fight via controversial unanimous decision. On August 15, 2020, Jones announced on social media that he would be relinquishing the Light Heavyweight Championship, as well as expressing his desire to move up to heavyweight, which hasn’t yet officially come to completion with a flight booking.
