At 22 years of age, Jon "Bones" Jones has quickly become a rising young star to look out for in the UFC's light heavyweight division. With two wins under the organization's banner—including an impressive decision victory over TUF season one finalist Stephan Bonnar—he’s already making waves in one of the most stacked divisions in the entire sport. Jon sat down with me to discuss his past, his upcoming bout with Jake O'brien at UFC 100, and his plans for the future.


The full article is here.

Great interview! I had no idea he was only 22, definitely has a bright future in the sport IMO.

he is a really fun fighter to watch. His striking is very uncoventional, he had great throws, and he has power. Watch out.

Pretty incredible that he didn't have a striking coach and watched Youtube videos in order to learn. I guess there is hope for keyboard warriors out there? lol
