Jon Jones vs. 5 of the UFC's Best Heavyweights

It’s shocking how a fighter can go from being favored in both the books of the odds makers and in the hearts of fans to being considered a pariah who has more detractors than he has advocates.

Such is the strange case of Jon Jones.

Since he claimed the belt by destroying Shogun Rua, and then proceeded to defend it easily against Rampage Jackson and Lyoto Machida, fans have begun to find things about Jones they simply cannot abide.

Outside of the cage, they don’t like his attitude for any number of reasons: he’s either too cocky or too fake in his humility or too whatever.

Inside the cage, they hate the fact that he enjoys what seems to be some seriously unfair advantages, mainly based upon his considerable wingspan and reach. Thus, as Jones continues to roll over the opposition at light heavyweight, those detractors continue to call Jones out to the land of heavyweights, where they are positive they would get to see Jones get his comeuppance.

I am not so sure about that. Read on and find out why.
