Jones will fight for the heavyweight championship at UFC 285 on March 4 against Ciryl Gane in Las Vegas.

That is just the start of a heavy dose of heavyweight news.

UFC President Dana White said Jones has signed an 8-fight deal.

As one fighter returns, another heavyweight exits.

Francis Ngannou (17-3 MMA, 12-2 UFC) and UFC have parted ways after a contract dispute.

Ngannou is stripped of his championship and released. White says they waived the exclusive negotiating window and no matching rights clause. Meaning, Ngannou is truly a free agent and can sign with whatever promotion he wants, as soon as possible.
