If conventional wisdom is right, and Jon Jones becomes MMA's transcendent figure, the one who brings the sport on a ride to the next level, 20 years from now, you'll be telling your kids about the epic story of the day Jones won the belt.

It's a hard-to-believe tale that might one day be part of a movie that people assume is fiction. But it began with Jones foiling a robbery and ended late in the evening of the night the earth saw its first supermoon in 18 years, with Jones vanquishing the battle-hardened champion Mauricio "Shogun" Rua in a third-round TKO so dominant, it bordered on ridiculous.

Jones controlled the action from the opening touch of gloves until referee Herb Dean pulled him off a downed Rua two minutes, 37 seconds into the third. According to Compustrike, Jones out-landed Rua 87-13, took him down twice, and landed 57 ground strikes to Rua's zero.

At 23 years, 243 old, Jones is the youngest champion in UFC history.

Gonna be a helluva fight. I got money on Shogun and expect him to win. But if that Jones manages to pull it off, I will be super impressed.

May the best man win.

What are the odds on there being a mass UG suicide if Jones dominates?

Lets be real here, Jones will take this easily. This is more about the new bread of height and size, not athleticsm.

Joe's calling this correctly. Still, Jones has a lot of potential and definitely has a chance.
