For maybe the first time in his career, UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones faced adversity in a title defense against Lyoto Machida at UFC 140. Although Jones lost the first round of Saturday's fight on one judge's scorecard, the budding superstar pulled off a submission victory in the second round to retain his belt.
With title defenses against two former UFC champions already in his rear-view mirror, it's already time to begin looking ahead at what the future may hold for Jones. In all likelihood, Jones' next defense will come against the winner of a bout between former teammate Rashad Evans and rising star Phil Davis.
Let's take a look at the matches that the UFC should make for Jon Jones and the rest of the UFC 140 competitors.
