B/R Rankings for January: The Top 10 Light Heavyweights in MMA

1 of 11

    Without a doubt, 2011 was the year of Jon Jones.

    Jones went a perfect 4-0, including winning the light heavyweight title against Mauricio "Shogun" Rua at UFC 128 and defending the title against Quinton "Rampage" Jackson and Lyoto Machida in dominant fashion.

    Will 2012 also be the year of Jones, or will there be another young gun to step up and dethrone him? Or could an old dog learn a new trick?

    We're only a couple of days into the New Year, so we have plenty of time to find out.

    To start off the year, here are the official Bleacher Report light heavyweight rankings for the month of January.
