UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones was entirely serious when he recently stated his desire to leave the sport of MMA behind by 30 years old.

Jones (19-1 MMA, 13-1 UFC), 26, believes he will be able to accomplish all of his career goals within the next four years, at which point he will make his exit from active competition.

More power to Jones with whatever decision he makes, but I have my doubts here. When did Anderson say he was going to retire? 36?

Certainly not a fan of Jon, but I can't blame him. Learn from the mistakes of Liddell and Pulver (although he had to fight for money), go out on top instead.

That's still a pretty long career, roughly 9 years (2008-2017).

If he actually sticks to it though, we shall see.

Jones is one fighter I want to see carried out on his shield. Damn.
