As if beating the legendary “Shogun” Rua to become the youngest UFC champion in history (23 years old) wasn’t enough for Jon “Bones” Jones, how about the fact he also subdued a man who minutes earlier attacked an elderly couple only mere hours before this fight even took place? Much like his opponent’s superlatives simply are no match for what Jon Jones is and what he can become, he appears unbeatable.
Crime fighter by day, light-heavyweight champion by night.
Jon (Bones) Jones did it all Saturday, chasing down a thief in nearby Paterson before mugging Mauricio (Shogun) Rua in the cage for his light-heavyweight belt in the main event of UFC 128 at Newark’s Prudential Center.
“The only thing left to do is deliver a baby on his way out of here or something,” joked UFC president Dana White. “I don’t know what else this guy can do.”
