Jon Jones' latest Instagram posts are the equivalent of sirens blaring to warn of Godzilla coming ashore. They are an omen of impending destruction. And absolutely no one is safe.
He is coming back to lay waste to the UFC roster.
The former UFC light heavyweight champion looks like a beast waiting to be unleashed on his prey. Considering how he eviscerated his opposition en route to the title in the first place, this new beast of a human could devour everyone in sight.
Part of Jones' focus through his suspension and revamped training has been powerlifting. Jones has posted several videos showing off his newfound strength, and now that he has returned to MMA training, we are getting a gander at his power translating into his training.
He has become even more formidable.
And it has not come at the expense of his other athletic abilities.
Jones has always maintained that he plans to move up in weight and go after the ultimate prize in combat sports—a heavyweight championship.
His physical attributes, new physique and growing strength could mean that move is not too far off from becoming a reality. Even the heavyweight division needs to heed the warning signs coming from Albuquerque, New Mexico.
The return date for Jones has yet to be set, but all signs are pointing to a rematch with Daniel Cormier. Jones defeated him in early 2015, but following Bones' suspension, Cormier claimed the vacant belt as his own with a victory over Anthony Johnson.
Jones is coming for his belt.
If this is what we get to see in the Octagon in his return, then neither Cormier nor anyone else will stop him from creating a mass extinction event in the light heavyweight and heavyweight divisions.
The UFC needs to start looking in the depths of the oceans and jungles to find a worthy challenger.
With every new post and every new video, the sound of the sirens grows louder.
