    UFC icon Jon Jones has joked he has seen a boost in his "sexual performance" during a crazy body transformation to fuel his heavyweight title bid.

    Jones, 35, makes his heavyweight debut in an undisputed title showdown against Ciryl Gane at UFC 285 tonight in Las Vegas. Former light-heavyweight king Jones has taken three years out of the octagon to power on the pounds and compete in the biggest weight division.

    And the New Yorker – who has fought at 205lb for most of his legendary career – has now tipped the scales at 248lb ahead of his hotly-anticipated battle against Gane.

    Jones has weighed in even heavier than his opponent – a natural heavyweight – and has increased his bench press to 520lb and his deadlift to a huge 600lb whilst eating up to 4500 calories every day during his transformation.

    "I used to hate weightlifting," he told Alexander Volkanovski on Fox Sports Australia. "Now if I don't get a workout in I feel miserable. Now I love fitness. I love being 250lbs. I feel incredibly strong.

    "I feel like I think more clear now I'm eating more food. Sexual performance is better without the d*** pills."

    Jones – who will be remembered for various controversies as well as his status as one of the UFC greats – was infamously slapped with a one-year ban in 2016 after claiming he took a contaminated pill for erectile dysfunction.

    The then interim light heavyweight champion, Jones tested positive for two banned substances clomiphene and letrozole, which he claimed came from a pill to treat erectile dysfunction.

    His UFC 200 bout was scrapped as the United States Anti-Doping Agency [USADA] concluded that Jones' explanation “crossed the threshold of probability” and the pill was used to boost his sex life rather than his performance inside the octagon.

    Veteran Jones is widely considered the greatest UFC fighter of all time and can cement that status with a victory over Frenchman Gane in his long-awaited return to action at the T-Mobile Arena on Saturday night.
