UFC lightweight exposes UFC for photoshopping promo following Jon Jones’ UFC 285 win

The highly anticipated UFC 285 match saw Jon Jones make his triumphant return to the octagon after an extended absence.

In his heavyweight debut, Jones emerged victorious. He secured the heavyweight title by submitting Ciryl Gane via guillotine in under two minutes of the opening round.

Despite the outstanding performance, a UFC star, Terrance McKinney, pointed out a significant issue with the promotional pictures of Jones released after the event.

However, McKinney shared a picture where Ngannou’s right arm had been photoshopped onto Jon Jones’ right arm holding the belt. This discovery raised concerns among several UFC fans, who took to the post’s comment section to express their dissatisfaction.

The use of Photoshop in promotional pictures is not uncommon in the UFC. However, fans have grown increasingly tired of the promotion’s reliance on this practice. In this case, it appears that Ngannou’s arm was digitally removed and replaced with Jones’, which many fans view as disrespectful to the UFC stars.

UFC fans took it one step further producing this classic take:

Previously UFC was caught photoshopping Usman’s arm on several champions.

UFC has just been caught lazily photoshopping Kamaru Usman’s arm and belt onto Jamahal Hill’s body. It seems like they didn’t bother taking fresh pics of the new light heavyweight champion Hill for promotional material.

Fans are pointing out how the company has used fused Hill’s body with Usman’s right arm which is holding the welterweight title. The company has modified it a bit to match Hill’s skin tone and they’ve also added his tattoo to it.


The picture is referring to the company doing the same thing with Leon Edwards after he beat Usman for the 170-pound title. They didn’t even bother removing the title defense gems on it.

But this wasn’t the only mistake that they made regarding ‘Usman vs Edwards 2’.

The UFC previously messed up by photoshopping a picture of Hill instead of Edwards to announce UFC 278 which Edwards headlined against Usman.

Fans criticized the promotion for not taking Edwards seriously, even though it took him years to climb back up the ladder for a title shot.

The UFC has not commented on the issue, but fans continue to express their outrage on social media. Some have even suggested that the stars should be allowed to keep their limbs out of their contracts to prevent such situations from arising.
