UFC 285: Tom Brady sends Jon Jones a message from one 'GOAT' to another

Former NFL quarterback Tom Brady sent Jon Jones a cheerful message prior to UFC 285 on Saturday, calling him the "GOAT" and congratulating him for what he's already done in the sport.

Brady, 45, also confirmed he will be present at T-Mobile Arena to witness Jones' return. The message from one GOAT to another was shared by the official UFC account.

"Hey John, I wanted to say welcome back to the main stage," Brady said in a message posted to Instagram. "It's great to see the GOAT doing what he does best and doing what he's meant to do. So I thought seven titles was a lot. You doubled it, man!

"And I know tonight's not going to be easy. Cyril Gane's standing on the other side of that Octagon. He's a bad man. It's gotta be an incredible fight. Dana [White] knows how to put on a great show as always, and I wouldn't miss this one for the world. I'm gonna be there watching, good luck to both you guys, tonight. And John, congrats on an amazing career of greatness. Let's f---ing go!"

Brady recently retired from the NFL after winning seven Super Bowl titles in 23 seasons.

Jones, 35, hasn't stepped foot inside the octagon since February 2020, when he defeated Dominick Reyes to successfully defend the UFC light heavyweight title.

He will be making his heavyweight debut against Gane, weighing in 44 pounds heavier than for his last fight.

Jones has a UFC record 14 title victories, plus most light heavyweight wins (20) and longest light heavyweight win streak (13).

"Bones" is already widely considered to be the greatest UFC fighter of all time. A decisive win victory over Gane would only help to improve Jones' incredible legacy in the sport.
