Following the earth-shattering revelation, one Twitter user took it upon themselves to give Jones a piece of advice. 

"Literally anywhere but Jackson Wink. That gym is not relevant anymore dude, you carried them for 10 years," wrote @dsfrwwa.

Jones, 34, read to what he had to say, before replying: "I don’t feel like I carried the team, we have lots of guys doing amazing things out of that gym.

"I will admit the program isn’t at the level it used to be, and hasn’t been for a while now."

Where was Jon Jones born?

And after spending almost the entirety of his career training in the harsh climate of Albuquerque, New Mexico, Jones admits he is looking for a change in scenery. 

Jones added: "I know I won’t be able to train in my garage forever, eventually I’m going to need more training partners. Mainly wrestling partners and kickboxers.

"I’m on the lookout for teams that I’ll be able to visit and come train with, maybe get some sparring sessions in."
