Since being reinstated by the UFC after an indefinite suspension stemming from a hit-and-run case in April, Jon Jones has been all over social media...and apparently the Wi-Fi in his weight room is awesome. 

Jones' favorite topic—when he isn't getting into Twitter battles with Daniel Cormier over the UFC light heavyweight belt (warning: NSFW language)—has been how absolutely ripped he is these days. His latest post has the Internet buzzing. Check it out, via Bleacher Report's Patrick Wyman:

Also, how crazy is it that Jones was easily the best fighter on the planet when he wasn't even trying all that hard? Just look at him now.

Needless to say, the difference between the 2013 version of Jones and the 2015 model is profound. Jones is clearly beefing up, and while he may have done some preparation for this shot—whether it's shedding some water or picking an ideal filter—the difference is undeniable.

It's also worth noting that Jones mentioned he will "be at [his] best" for April 23, the date the UFC currently has booked at Madison Square Garden. No fights have been announced for that card yet, so it's possible Jones may have spilled the beans on a date for a potential title rematch with Cormier.

It's definitely worth watching out for any announcements over the coming days from either the UFC or Cormier.
