Guess we’ll be dealing with this Jon Jones guy at the top for a while, eh? Fresh from another dominant performance, one that tied him with Hall of Famer Tito Ortiz for most UFC title defenses at 205 pounds, Mr. Jones is starting to hear that All-Time great talk once again. To his credit, he’s taking it all in with grace and saying the right things, but man, it’s hard not to see that the only thing that may stop him from achieving such a status at this point would be injuries. Then again, he did finish Chael Sonnen off Saturday night after suffering a grotesque toe break, so maybe even broken bones can’t stop the New Yorker. Assuming he’ll be on the shelf for a while to heal up, he’s got either Lyoto Machida or Alexander Gustafsson to look at next, and perhaps those two contenders will fight each other to stay busy while waiting. Well, Jones has already beat Machida, and though Gustafsson is an interesting size and style matchup, he will still enter a title fight with Jones as an underdog. Suffice to say that the future continues to look blindingly bright for the 25-year-old champion . . . Click here for more
