Jon Jones' public image has taken a considerable hit since he last stepped into the Octagon against Rashad Evans.
In June, the UFC's light heavyweight champion plead guilty of driving under the influence, after wrecking his Bentley Continental GT into a pole. However, that only began the stream of constant criticism that Jones has had to deal with leading into his fourth title defense.
After Jones' UFC 151 opponent, Dan Henderson, was forced out of their fight due to injury, the titleholder turned down a short-notice bout against former middleweight title contender Chael Sonnen. That decision ultimately led to the cancellation of the UFC 151 fight card, which caused many fans to blame the champion despite the fact that Jones was not responsible for putting together an event that was considered unsuitable without him.
Now, Jones finds himself headlining UFC 152 in a fifth straight championship bout against a current or former UFC champion. After months of battling verbal assault, Jones finally gets to do what he does best. He gets to close his mouth and talk with his fists.
Along with predictions for every fight, here is all the information a fan could need heading into Saturday's UFC 152.
