Provided he gets past Chael Sonnen (27-12-1 MMA, 6-5 UFC) this Saturday at UFC 159, UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones (17-1 MMA, 11-1 UFC) plans to fight again in November.

And if successful in defending his belt this fall, Jones told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) he'll shift focus to competing in superfights and the heavyweight division.

Jones, who's as big as a 10-to-1 favorite to beat Sonnen, has a goal to surpass the current record for successful title defenses in his division, which was set by UFC Hall of Famer Tito Ortiz at five...

10-1 seems absurd. 5-1 maybe, but 10-1 is crazy.

Jones has the potential to be the Michael Jordan of MMA. I'm extremely curious to see how long he can continue to destroy his opponents for.

Russell never had Anderson's offense.....nor his striking ability
