Jon Jones has some big plans for his career, even if his career is still as young as he is, both physically and emotionally. According to a recent interview in the buildup to UFC 159 where he’ll square off against the loudmouthed Chael Sonnen, Jones made mention of Tito Ortiz’s UFC Light Heavyweight Title reign, which brought him to defend the title a grand total of five times before he dropped the title. Jones is looking to break that record this fall, by winning not only the Chael Sonnen fight, but whatever is lined up after that, and then move on to greener pastures.
Those greener pastures, for Jones, are by the way of Heavyweight Superfights. Jones would be willing to fight up a weight class against the heaviest of the UFC Heavyweights in Superfights after he broke Tito Ortiz’s record to help to solidify himself as one of the all-time greats. Of course, six title defenses is nowhere near the UFC’s current record-setting title run, which belongs to Anderson Silva with a grand total of ten title defenses. Jon Jones is looking to only break the record for his own division, apparently.
He is also overlooking his opponent, Chael Sonnen by quite a bit.
