On September 22nd, Jon Jones will celebrate his twelvth fight in the UFC, facing Vitor Belfort in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Jon Jones is currently 11-1 in the UFC, with sights on solidifying his legacy against one of the best fighters to ever compete in MMA. The following video reminds us about Jon Jones' journey towards making history against Shogun Rua.
Jon Jones was recently interviewed on ESPN's 1stTake, discussing his decision to decline the fight with Chael Sonnen at UFC 151. The champ declared he has no regrets over his decision, claiming that there was very little to gain in such situation.
"I don't regret the decision," Jones said Tuesday on "SportsCenter." "I pretty much had everything to lose in that situation. Chael Sonnen is a guy whose record is, I think, 6-5, which isn't a very good record to even fight for a world title.
"I just thought it would be a bad decision to give a guy the opportunity of a lifetime like that."
