In case you were wondering, Jon Jones is only getting better.
Through all of his accomplishments, the one thing we had never seen from Jones prior to his UFC 152 title defense against Vitor Belfort was the champion battle through adversity.
That changed Saturday night.
Jones was able to overcome an extremely tight first round armbar attempt from “The Phenom” that seemingly injured his right arm, and "Bones" and fought through an injury that may have caused other fighters to at least consider giving in.
Instead, the champion came out and put on yet another textbook victory, getting on top of Belfort whenever possible and grounding and pounding his opponent with brutal elbows.
Eventually, Jones earned himself a submission victory, and with the win, finds his already shockingly high reputation amongst fight fans growing a bit more.
