Athletes like Jon Jones are the kind that take sports to new levels.
An aura of easy greatness surrounds the 24-year-old. His seamless combination of eclectic techniques from all areas of fighting applied with a steadied and focused mind set the dynamic young champion apart from almost all of his peers. He already occupies rare air, but his youth indicates that we’ve only seen the beginning of Jonny Bones’ potential.
Considering that — his potential — and all that he’s already accomplished, comparisons to Muhammed Ali have become commonplace for Jones. Check out the promo for Jones’ upcoming title defense against Rashad Evans at UFC 145 to see his work set to Ali’s famous taunt of George Foreman, “The champ is here!”
