Michael Jordan, Muhammad Ali, Tiger Woods, Babe Ruth; these are men in their respective sports who are the greatest to ever do it. Now, we can add Jon Jones to this list, inside that octagon there is no one who does it better.
Jon Jones recaptured the Light Heavyweight Championship at UFC 232 by TKO Alexander Gustafsson in the third round. During his victory speech he had to mention his Lakers to Celtics, his Yankees to Red Sox, even Republicans to Democrats; his bitter rival, Daniel Cormier. DC fights at Heavyweight now and he fights out one of the best camps in the world, American Kick Boxing Academy, based in San Jose, California. So the question is, who will Jon Jones Fight next? Could it be Anthony Smith, maybe Corey Anderson? It has to be that fighter out of AKA, right?
Today out of the AKA camp, Luke Rockhold put his name in the mix. A former Middleweight Champion who has beaten top notch competition in the UFC for the past 4 years would love to get a crack at the Light Heavyweight King. This fight could come out of nowhere with mega star power and of course could lead us to the mystical trilogy fight between Jon Jones & Daniel Cormier. Stay Tuned MMA Fans, this sport is Bananas!
