Jon Jones vs. Vitor Belfort and Other Hot Topics from UFC 152
Paul Abell-US PRESSWIRE

Jon Jones is one victory away from equaling the legendary light heavyweight title runs that Chuck Liddell and Frank Shamrock put together inside the Octagon. At UFC 152, Jones will have a chance to earn that win against Vitor Belfort.

Having earned the light heavyweight belt with a January 2004 win over Randy Couture, when Couture suffered an unfortunate cut in the opening minute of action, Belfort is the fifth straight former UFC champion Jones has squared off against. Though he is returning to the 205-pound division after three straight appearances at middleweight, Belfort will try to capture the title more convincingly against Jones.

At this point, every Jones fight is a big one. The 25-year-old appears to be closing in on a UFC record that has stood for nearly a decade. November will mark the 10-year anniversary of Tito Ortiz's fifth consecutive light heavyweight title defense in a bout with rival Ken Shamrock.

That said, there are plenty of other story lines heading into Saturday's event. These are UFC 152's hottest topics.
