Why Machida and Every Other 205-Pounder Don't Stand a Chance Against Jon Jones

Dominating a sport is one of those things that every fan loves to see but secretly hates to watch go on too long, and Jon “Bones” Jones is frustrating an awful lot of people out there.

The 25-year-old is developing the kind of streak that most professional athletes can only dream of, and that isn’t just in mixed martial arts, that’s in sports.

Right now, the prodigy is preparing for his bout with Dan Henderson in just over a week’s time, but the odds dictate that Jones will see out a comfortable victory over the, far from easy, opposition.

Looking past the Henderson fight, it’s become evident that Lyoto Machida is the man that many out there want to see Jones go up against next—a fight Jones wants no part of.

The Nike poster boy undoubtedly has the talent to put Machida away for a second time, and despite reports that Jones doesn’t want the fight (via Franklin McNeil of ESPN.com), he’s still sitting too pretty to be caught quite yet.

The New York native is enjoying the kind of run that future prospects will find it nigh impossible to match, and here’s why it’s going to continue for some time yet.
