The latest look at Jon Jones' transformation to heavyweight shows the UFC superstar looking absolutely stacked ahead of his anticipated Octagon return.
Jones is set to return to action later this year and will debut at heavyweight following his remarkable body transformation.
He's put on serious mass and bulked up ahead of competing as a heavyweight for the first time in his legendary career.
A new image of Jones' physique has since emerged online and has gone viral, leaving MMA fans stunned.
One Twitter user wrote: "He’s going to wreck Stipe. That fight won’t be close."
A second tweeted: "Y’all looking at the GOAT son. About to take the heavyweight goat title as well."
A third added: "I will say I like that he looks more like a strongman than a bodybuilder Shows he's going for strength rather than just aesthetically bigger."
Jones hasn't fought since his championship victory over Dominick Reyes at UFC 247 back in February 2020.
But he's expected to meet former UFC heavyweight title holder Stipe Miocic in his comeback bout, recently tweeting about a potential showdown in September.
On Twitter, he wrote: "Stipe is saying that he will be at his absolute peak in September. I’m disappointed but patient, I want the heavyweight goat at his absolute best. I’ll wait until September. No excuses."

UFC president Dana White also teased Miocic vs. Jones when asked about the promotion's lineup this summer.
Asked about this year's UFC International Fight Week card in July, White told TMZ Sports: "Listen, people have been talking about how awesome this card is, and I was just telling somebody the other day our lineup for this summer is incredible."
On Jones, he added: "I'm hoping that Jon Jones is gonna be a part of that lineup this summer.
"Yeah, Stipe makes sense."
