There is no amount of your hate that can deter Jon Jones from becoming the greatest fighter in the young history of mixed martial arts. It’s just simply impossible for any external factor, be it spiritual or physical, to prevent Jon Jones from being UFC’s greatest champion. Sure Vitor Belfort caught Jones in a rather tight and nasty armbar in the first round, but the fact that Jones said in his post-fight interview that he would never tap to it just shows you the level of determination the twenty-five-year-old has.
People hate on Jon Jones because he repeatedly says he’s great — then when he displays a level of greatness reserved for the likes of Muhammad Ali, Michael Jordan and Bruce Lee — you guys still hate on him. So be it. There’s nothing in this universe that can stop him. Even in death, his ghost can still wipe the entire light heavyweight division clean.
We know your heart skipped a beat when Vitor caught Jones with that armbar and flexed it like he wanted to be Ronda Rousey for Halloween. After the near sub, it was pretty clear that Jones arm wasn’t 100%, but we’re not certain if that’s what prompted Jones to continuously go for the take down and attack with his elbows. After endearing four brutal rounds of pummeling, Vitor Belfort eventually tapped out with seconds left in the fourth round.
Jon Jones pulled off an americana on a Brazilian in Canada. That’s a United Nations finish — and a really cheesy way to end an article.
