Wow, what was I thinking picking picking against “Bones” Jones??? Actually, I thought that Rua might be one of the few fighters who would have a chance against Jones because of his mutli-faceted MMA skill set and his superior experience in MMA. I thought that might enable Rua to prevail over the of relatively inexperienced challenger. Wrong.
Jones was in control in entire fight. Jones’ large 6’4″ frame combined with fast reflexes and outstanding wrestling ability give him a huge advantage over everyone in the UFC Light Heavyweight division.
I hope Jon Jones has a long run as champion. He is an admirable young man in many ways. He is smart, articulate and polite. He is also a committed Christian. The tattoo on his upper right chest is Philippians 4:13.
“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”
