The UFC’s light heavyweight division is comparable to a prime of hungry, man-eating lions.
From top to bottom, the 205 lbs. roster is filled with world-class talent and ferocious competitors unparallelled to any other weight class.
But as talented as they are, one lion makes them all look like a herd of vulnerable antelope.
At the young age of 23, UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones stands atop the division as king. He has decisively destroyed every fighter in his path to the championship, and it doesn’t look like he is slowing down anytime soon.
For Jones, this is just the beginning of his reign of terror over the light heavyweight division. This is now his kingdom, but there are many warriors looking to knock him off his throne.
UFC 130 features a main event between two fighters looking to do just that, and there are plenty others in the division who are on the brink of a title shot as well.
Jones may give the impression of invincibility, but make no mistake about it, he certainly has his work cut out for him.
Let’s take a look at what could be in store for the UFC light heavyweight champion in the foreseeable future.
