Jon Jones: UFC Champion

If there is anyone in the sports of MMA who does not need an introduction, it has to be the UFC light heavyweight champion and arguably the greatest mixed martial artists ever, Jon ‘Bones’ Jones. Although his life outside the octagon has been controversial, it’s undeniable that Jones is as good as a fighter can get.

13 title defenses, 26 opponents, and multiple generations of fighters, yet no one has figured out how to beat Jones.

Jones has defeated elite strikers such as Lyoto Machida, Olympic level wrestlers such as Daniel Cormier, and world champion boxers such as Alexander Gustafsson. In his impressive career, Jones has also beaten some big names such as Rampage Jackson, Chael Sonnen, and Ryan Bader.

However, Jones has one loss on his record against Matt Hamill. The fight between Jones and Hamill was stopped since Jones threw illegal elbows in the first round. Although Jones was fairly dominating Hamill up to that point, the judges gave the decision in favor of Matt Hamill.

Jones is known for his rivalry with former light heavyweight and heavyweight champion, Daniel Cormier. Both of them fought each other twice, and Jones got his hands raised both times inside the octagon.

Jones’ last fight was against Dominick Reyes. It was also his toughest fight to date. And many pundits believe that Reyes should have been granted the win.

In March 2020, Jones was arrested again for driving under the influence and negligent use of a firearm.

Jon Jones: Charity
