Jones: I believe I’ll be champion for a long time


At only twenty six years of age, Jon Jones already holds the title for consecutive title defenses in the history of the light heavyweight division.

Jones has looked impressive in every fight, but not more so than at this past weekend's UFC 172. Jones put the fight where most people believed Glover Teixeira had an advantage and beat him at his own game. Jones believes that is making improvements every camp and plans to be the champion for a while:

“I do have a lot of great gifts. You have to be smart. You have to have a great work ethic. One thing you have to have is a chin. I realized I have a chin. I caught some uppercuts and some left hooks. I’m blessed to prove I can fight at close range. A lot of people believe that to beat me you have to get inside. Today I threw more elbows standing than ever,” he noted.

“I’m closing up the holes in my game – jiu-jitsu, takedown defense, takedowns, close-range fighting. I believe I’ll be champion for a long time.”

Yeah and I bet you said the same crap about Machdia, Vitor, Chael, Gus, and Glover. How did all that work out for ya? So maybe, just for Jone's next fight, ditch the hate and discuss the fight like a fuckin adult

In the world of keeping it close, Gus will always be a champion.

Dont need your help. Jones was given a gift decision, he's a dirty fighter and a douche.

Fine, but rewatch the fight and learn what the rest of us learned after we rewatched the fight live the first time while rooting for every little victory Gus had in the fight behind the booming praise of Joe Rogan. You'll see the real fight.

Jon Jones is the greatest of all-time, if not, he probably will be very shortly. People may not like to hear that since Fedor/Anderson/GSP have made them into fans, but look at Jones' body of work.
