We’ve seen greatness many times in the Octagon, but none is more tragic than the greatness of Jon Jones.
Possessing limitless talent, Jones rocketed to the top of the UFC with stunningly-impressive victories – victories that made this tough sport look easy. And then he crapped it all away with drugs and vehicular shenanigans.
Because of Jones, we’ve been stuck with a division that’s lost its luster. After all, how great can champ Daniel Cormier be when he never beat Jones to earn his belt, and in fact lost to him?
Hopefully, Cormier and Jones will have their rematch at UFC 214 and settle things once and for all. Maybe then we can have our light-heavyweight division back.
Anyway, here’s Jones when Jones was a superhero.
