Can anyone stop Jon Jones?
This is the question that everyone keeps asking. The answer is – yes. There is always someone that can beat someone else. Matt Hughes ruled the welterweight world until Georges St Pierre emerged, Rich Franklin is but a memory compared to Anderson Silva’s rule, and up until Jones the light heavyweight title changed each card. The real question is what can Jones do while on top?
The reality is that Jon Jones has the potential of being a true face for the UFC organization. Stop comparing him to Anderson Silva and start thinking in line with St. Pierre. Young, charismatic, and can work the camera/microphone. Assuming Jones’ ego does not grow with his legacy, he could become a marketing juggernaut.
That is about all I have to say about this one. Partly because I’m suffering some major writer’s block of late, and partly because this was a real dud of a PPV. It hardly lived up to the hype of this pretty awesome infographic the UFC shared with Mashable leading up to show time.
What did you think of UFC 145?
