自2001年UFC 31成立以来，UFC轻量级部门一直是球迷的最爱。“Middleweight” which is today’185磅司。那里’一直是Tito Ortiz，Chuck Liddell，Randy Couture，Forest Griffin和Vitor Belfort之类的成功获得UFC轻量级冠军的人，但Jon‘Bones’在过去十年中，琼斯以其压倒性的统治力为所有这些传奇205选手中的每一个阴影。
琼·琼斯 fights out of Albuquerque, New Mexico under arguably the best gym 在 all of 甲基丙烯酸甲酯, Jackson Wink 甲基丙烯酸甲酯. This gym has been home to many UFC Champions or top challengers over the years 在cluding the likes of UFC Heavyweights Andrei Arlovski, Alistair Overeem & Travis Browne, Former UFC Light-Heavyweight Champion Rashad Evans, Former UFC Welterweight and Lightweight Champion BJ Penn, Top UFC 中量级 Yoel Romero, Fan Favourite UFC Fighters such as Donald ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone and Carlos Condit and Former UFC Womens Bantamweight Champion Holly Holm. The list goes on and on for great competitors that have been based out of Jackson Wink 甲基丙烯酸甲酯 but none compare to 琼·琼斯.
琼·琼斯 first stepped foot 在to a UFC octagon at UFC 87 as an undefeated prospect with a record of 6-0 with each of his wins coming via a finish. His first bout with the UFC came against André Gusmã, this started 琼·琼斯’击败Gusm，在促销活动中名列前茅ã令人信服并获得他的第一个职业一致决定胜利。在UFC 94比赛中，斯蒂芬·邦纳（Stephan Bonner）独领风骚之后，琼斯（Jones）将以第二个“一致决定”（Wind）的决定获胜。
在UFC 100比赛中，乔恩·琼斯（Jon Jones）通过完成杰克·奥（Jake O）的比赛再次向顶级UFC轻量级选手发表了声明’Brien在第二回合中通过断头台cho节，获得了他的UFC冠军。当时乔恩·琼斯（Jon Jones）的战绩为9-0，并以惊人的方式赢得了他的前三场UFC比赛，这开始让UFC粉丝们that然，乔恩·琼斯（Jon Jones）有潜力成为该部门的未来，但琼斯’下一场与马特·哈米尔的战斗导致琼斯’直到今天才失去职业。琼斯在第一轮后期对哈米尔进行了攻击，随后在哈米尔上空进行了全面攻势，然后琼斯开始以恶毒的速度投掷肘部。在被琼斯殴打后，裁判跳下马来，使哈米尔免于受到琼斯的伤害’肘部一遍又一遍地被认为是琼斯在将军澳哈米尔之后将比分推至10-0并继续前进。不幸的是，该公告没有’t 在 Jones’赞成并导致琼斯因被称为12-6肘的非法肘而丧失参赛资格，该肘最初被宣布扣分，但由于哈米尔无法继续进行，该回合被裁定琼斯被取消参赛资格。这引起了关于12-6肘的争议，并且至今仍在讨论12-6肘是否与以不同角度投掷的肘有什么不同。
琼斯之后’作为职业选手的第一次失败，他继续通过手肘与布兰登·维拉（Brandon Vera）的肘部取得了具有讽刺意味的胜利&弗拉基米尔·马秋申科（Vladimir Matyushenko）。这两场胜利导致琼恩·琼斯（Jon Jones）’下一位对手是UFC 126的瑞安·巴德（Ryan Bader），当乔恩·琼斯（Jon Jones）被视为合法竞争者并且可能是未来的UFC冠军时，他对乔恩·琼斯（Jon Jones）构成了很多威胁。琼斯轻松完成了Bader的工作，然后在第二轮断头台完成了前景，将比分改写为12-1。当乔·罗根（Joe Rogan）在琼斯（Jones）夺冠后与八角形交手时，罗根（Rogan）告诉乔恩（Jon）当时的队友，拉沙德·埃文斯（Rashad Evans）退出了与当时的冠军Shogan Rua的较量，这导致乔恩·琼斯（Jon Jones）被提议介入挑战Shogan Rua作为UFC轻量级冠军的后期替代者。琼斯过了仅一个月，这两名战斗机就被配对在UFC 128战斗’ win over Bader.
The Beginning of 琼·琼斯’ Title Reign
A lot of people believed that 琼·琼斯 was not ready to challenge for the belt so early 在 his career being only 23 years old when he stepped 在 against Rua and with Shogans already well established background and his most recent win over Lyoto Machida 通过 KO to win the title, fans believed that Shogan was going to keep the title for a long time. 琼·琼斯 opened up the bout with the champion with a flying knee which led to a masterclass performance 通过 Jones beating Shogan everywhere it went whether it was on the feet or if it went to the ground. The final blows came 在 the third round of the bout with Jones landing a knee through the middle and following up with a body shot, sending Shogan to the mat resulting 在 Jones beating Shogan via TKO to claim the UFC Light-Heavyweight title and becoming the youngest ever UFC Champion which still stands today.
琼·琼斯’首次冠军防守预计将于2011年8月6日在UFC 133对阵前队友和前UFC轻量级冠军Rashad Evans，但由于回合前的手部受伤，琼斯被淘汰出局，最初据说他的手部状况要求手外科手术。乔恩·琼斯（Jon Jones）后来选择接受外科手术，转而决定不做手术就休息并恢复受伤。这导致琼斯’对阵另一名前UFC轻量级冠军昆顿的第一道防线“Rampage”杰克逊琼恩·琼斯（Jon Jones）最近说，这次回合是他最害怕的’s felt before a bout due to 横冲直撞s one punch KO power and Jones added that he was having recurring dreams about being KO’d 通过 Jackson quickly 在 the first round which is why he started the bout with one hand still on the ground. Although 琼·琼斯 felt the pressure prior to the bout, his performance did not show it as he convincingly beat Jackson and went on to submit him 在 Round 4 通过 Rear-Naked Choke to retain his title and become the first man to submit 横冲直撞.
琼斯之后’第一次冠军争夺战，UFC尝试在2011年12月10日第二次为Jones Fs Evans重新安排UFC 140的比赛时间。这次回合再次失败，这次是Rashad Evans受伤。琼斯第二次与第二届前UFC轻量级冠军町田良人（Lyoto Machida）卫冕。町田当时在空手道和巴西柔术中系着黑带，并在第一轮对琼斯的比赛中展示了他的空手道技术，当时他以各种身体踢和可爱的定时闪电战技术对着琼斯进行了最干净的射击。这是琼斯职业生涯中迄今为止遇到的最大麻烦，尽管这并没有使琼斯摆脱击败另一个传奇的目标。在第2轮中，琼斯开始按照常规节奏，并在既定的空手道黑带上增加了投篮命中率，町田希望向琼斯前进，但在超近距离遇到超人拳，导致町田掉落，琼斯迅速结束比赛一个断头台，然后乔恩·琼斯（Jon Jones）脱下昏迷的町田，让他首先掉到垫子上，然后将町田用断头台pin住栅栏将其固定在栅栏上。这成为Lyoto Machidas记录的第一个提交损失，也是Jon Jones连续第二个提交损失。
琼·琼斯’最终排在第三名的对手是对手拉沙德·埃文斯（Rashad Evans）， UFC 145 and with the back and forth drama between the two, it looked as if 琼·琼斯 was going to face the hardest bout of his career beforehand. This was not the case as Jones won the fight with Evans convincingly 通过 Unanimous Decision laying the rivalry with Evans to finally rest. After all the years of comparing the two Light-Heavyweights, there was no longer an argument between the two. At the UFC 145 Post-Fight Press Conference, Dana White went on to announce that 琼·琼斯’第四名卫冕冠军将是UFC 151的丹·亨德森（Dan Henderson）。
As the Jones Vs Henderson fight grew closer, Henderson sustained 在juries resulting 在 a withdrawal from the title bout and with Jones left without an opponent, long time UFC 中量级 Chanel Sonnen offered to step 在 as a late notice replacement against Jones for the UFC Light-Heavyweight title. Jones turned down the offer to defend against Chael Sonnen as Jones’主教练格雷格·杰克逊（Greg Jackson）评论了这一提议，并表示将“Pretty Difficult”在这么短的时间内准备对阵Sonnen的回合。这导致按次计费方式全部被废弃，这是有史以来第一次废弃事件。后来据报道，亨德森实际上在拉伤前三周就受伤了，但试图将其隐藏起来以观察情况如何。这是琼斯和亨德森唯一一次被安排参加UFC职业生涯的比赛。
尽管琼斯因拒绝粉丝和UFC主席达纳·怀特（Dana White）呼吁与Sonnen的较晚通知而遭到强烈反对“最自私，令人作呕的决定之一’t just affect you.”琼斯原本计划在2012年9月22日在UFC 152上与里奇奥·町田重赛，以随后的按次付费观看比赛，但由于利奥托未在宣布之前签署协议，该消息后来被取消，乔恩·琼斯继续面对另一位前UFC轻量级冠军，以及UFC历来最伟大的球员之一Vitor Belfort。此回合再次被评为乔恩·琼斯（Jon Jones）’UFC中最艰难的测试，尽管投注赔率让琼斯成为13-1的最爱。当贝尔福（Belfort）对琼斯（Jones）钳住一根直臂杆时，这一言论达到了预期，而琼斯（Jones）则尽其所能被锁定，琼斯（Jones）拒绝通过试图使贝尔福（Belfort）滑落并滑落而提早进行贝尔福（Belforts）提交尝试。琼斯然后令人信服地压倒了前冠军，然后在贝尔福中段降落了一个可爱的计时赛德基克，导致贝尔福翻身，琼斯随后总结了美国的意见，贝尔福别无选择，只能在回合中进入第四轮。这使琼斯获得了4次冠军头衔，与伟大的查克·里德尔（Chuck Liddell）并列，并获得了65,000美元的“夜间奖金”，以表彰他的胜利。
Following 琼·琼斯’在最近的冠军争夺战中，他随后成立了执教《终极格斗第17赛季》的对手，对手是重新安排的对手查尔·索南（Chael Sonnen）。两人将在TUF决赛后于2013年4月27日结束比赛，尽管Sonnen试图在比赛中引起粉丝的兴趣，但Jones并没有’t see Sonnen as a legitimate contender and did not play 在to the trash talk to hype the bout up. When the two finally met 在 the octagon 琼·琼斯 made easy work of Chael Sonnen showing that Sonnen was 在 fact no real threat to his title reign as he beat Sonnen 通过 TKO 在 Round 1. Although Jones sustained an 在jury during the bout, it was self 在flicted as he dislocated his Phalanx (Big toe) which was shown live as the Post Fight Interview with Joe Rogan was taking place leaving Jones to be sat while being 在terviewed. This quick title defense led to Jones being tied for most UFC Light-Heavyweight title defenses of all time at 5 with Tito Ortiz.
琼·琼斯’第六届冠军争夺战定于2013年9月21日在UFC 165上与最有希望的前锋亚历山大·古斯塔夫森对抗。许多人认为古斯塔夫森没有’t really have anything to offer the reigning champion apart from his height being similar to Jones but Gustafsson shut all the doubters down after he became the first man to take 琼·琼斯 down and cut 琼·琼斯 during the bout. The fight between the two Light-Heavyweights went the full 5 rounds and with both men battered and beaten, 琼·琼斯 took the Unanimous Decision win, the fight itself is still today looked at as one of the greatest fights of all time and people believe that Gustafsson should have won the bout. Although there was controversy around the decision, 琼·琼斯 broke the all time record for most consecutive title defenses with his win over Gustafsson.
After back and forth on dates and venues, 琼·琼斯’ 7th UFC title defense came against Glover Teixeira who was on a 20 Fight Win Streak at the time with wins over the likes of Ryan Bader and Quinton Jackson to claim a title shot against 琼·琼斯, at UFC 172 on April 26th, 2014 在 Dallas, Texas. Jones dominated Teixeira for all 5 rounds 通过 pinning Teixeira against the fence and landing perfectly executed elbows right through the bout leading to every judge scoring the bout 50-45 在 favor of Jones.
琼斯之后的第二天’击败格洛弗，UFC主席达娜·怀特宣布琼斯’ next opponent would be Alexander Gustafsson 在 a highly anticipated rematch for the UFC Light-Heavyweight title which was looking to get scheduled for a Pay-Per-View 在 Sweden, Gustafssons home country. The bout was finally being looked at to be arranged 在 Las Vegas at UFC 177 but there was a slight hold up and that came with 琼·琼斯 allegedly refusing to fight Gustafsson and 在stead showing 在terest 在 a bout with them Undefeated Light-Heavyweight Daniel Cormier. However, not long after the original hold up, the UFC announced that 琼·琼斯 would 在 fact be facing Alexander Gustafsson 在 a rematch at UFC 178 on September 27th, 2014. The bout unfortunately fell through due to Gustafsson sustaining a torn meniscus and 在stead Jones would defend his title against Daniel Cormier at the same event. Once again, the title bout fell through as 琼·琼斯 sustained a leg 在jury of his own during training resulting 在 Jones to withdraw from the title bout against Cormier.
The Jones vs Cormier bout was rescheduled for UFC 182 on January 3rd, 2015. The rivalry between Jones and Cormier today is regarded as one of the most 在tense rivalries of all time with a scuffle occurring between the two Light-Heavyweights at a face off prior to the bout and a range of back and forth trash talk leading up to their highly anticipated bout. With the trash talk aside, 琼·琼斯 continued his dominant ways 通过 defeating Cormier 通过 Unanimous Decision which 在cluded 3 takedowns on Cormier who for background context, is a former Olympian and Jones successfully took Cormier down at various stages of the fight. This was Cormiers first professional loss but the bitter rivalry was far from over between the two.
After Anthony Johnson returned to the UFC, he went on a tear through the 205 division with his latest win coming over Alexander Gustafsson 在 Sweden 通过 first round TKO putting the Jones/Gustafsson fight away and making Johnson the Number 1 contender for the UFC title. Jones and Johnson were scheduled to face off at UFC 187 on May 23rd, 2015 but on the 28th of April, 琼·琼斯 was 在volved 在 a Hit-And-Run 在cident where he crashed his vehicle 在to a pregnant woman’s vehicle and then fled the scene. Not only did this end the never ending reign of 琼·琼斯 as Light-Heavyweight champion as he was 在definitely stripped of his title but it left fans globally wondering if 琼·琼斯 will ever return.
丹尼尔·科米尔（Daniel Cormier）在UFC 187对阵安东尼·约翰逊（Anthony Johnson）的比赛中，在空缺的冠军争夺战的第3轮中被后方赤裸Ch子（Rear Naked Choke）击败。 Cormier继续琼斯和他自己之间的竞争，然后在琼斯返回时叫琼斯在两者之间进行第二回合。
On the 23rd of October, 2015, the UFC then announced that they had 在 fact reinstated 琼·琼斯 to the active roster and was expected to return on April 23rd, 2016 at UFC 197 against Daniel Cormier for the UFC Light-Heavyweight title. On April 1st, Daniel Cormier pulled out of his title defense against Jones with a foot 在jury which left 琼·琼斯 competing against the always tough, Ovince Saint Preux for the Interim title. 琼·琼斯 made a successful comeback after over a year off after beating Saint Preux 通过 Unanimous Decision to gain the Interim UFC Light-Heavyweight title. This bout then set up Jones and Cormier to unify the two belts at the UFCs biggest stage at that point, UFC 200.
Although 琼·琼斯 looked to finally be clear of his troubles, he would come up against another wall 在 his career when he tested positive before his arranged rematch with Daniel Cormier 3 days out from the bout. This left Jones to receive a 1 Year Suspension from USADA and left Daniel Cormier to defeat Anderson Silva 在 a 3 round bout at UFC 200 在stead.
尽管琼斯在八角形比赛中处于旁观状态，但他确实在2016年12月14日的Submission Underground 2的格斗比赛中与UFC传奇人物丹·亨德森竞争，琼斯提交人亨德森凭借手臂三角赢得比赛。琼斯随后建议与进行Submission Underground赛事的前对手Chael Sonnen进行一场格斗比赛’到目前为止还没有发生。
琼·琼斯 was once again, scheduled to face Daniel Cormier when he returned to action 在 2017 at UFC 214 on July 29th which is around the time when Jones’暂停即将结束。所有人都为乔恩·琼斯锦上添花’ return, he did make it 在to the octagon against rival Daniel Cormier, 2 years after their original meeting and put on dominant performance over Cormier before landing a lovely timed head kick on Cormier before sending him to the mat and finishing him with strikes on the ground to regain his UFC Light-Heavyweight title. Jones then called for a bout with former UFC Heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar 在 his Post Fight Interview which unfortunately never ended up materializing due to 琼·琼斯 once again testing positive on July 28th (A day before the Cormier bout) but was announced on August 22nd, 2017 almost a month later. This left Jones to once again face suspension, the Light-Heavyweight title was returned to Daniel Cormier and the bout was ruled a No Contest for both fighters.
In September of 2018, it was announced that Jones would face a 15 month suspension following the failed drug test and with Daniel Cormier moving up to the UFCs Heavyweight division 在 that time and winning the UFC Heavyweight title against Stipe Miocic. This left Cormier to vacate the UFC Light-Heavyweight title and 琼·琼斯’被安排在UFC 232再次与亚历山大·古斯塔夫森（Alexander Gustafsson）争夺轻量级冠军。
琼·琼斯 and Alexander Gustafsson were slated to fight 在 their rematch, 6 years after their original bout for the vacant Light-Heavyweight title and with fans believing that the bout was going to be a close fight like the first bout, 琼·琼斯 left no doubt about whether Gustafsson was his equal after he finished Alexander Gustafsson 通过 Ground and Pound TKO 在 Round 3.
琼·琼斯 then went on to defend his Light-Heavyweight title against Anthony Smith at UFC 235 and Thiago Santos at UFC 239 and won both bouts 通过 decision. Jones convincingly beat Anthony Smith 在 their bout but when Thiago Santos got his opportunity against Jones, he threw everything but the kitchen sink at Jones and lost a close Split Decision which left fans wondering whether Jones was starting to slow down.
琼·琼斯’ most recent title defense came against Dominick Reyes at UFC 247 on February 8th, 2020. This was the closest bout to date that Jones has had with an opponent on paper as Reyes barely lost a decision to Jones and with 14 out of 21 media outlets scoring the fight for Reyes, it leaves two rematches waiting for 琼·琼斯 when he returns to action.
Lately 琼·琼斯 has butted heads with the UFC over financial negotiations and how much money he should be making compared to how much he is making with Dana White making the remark that Jones allegedly asked for “Deontay Wilder Money”介于$ 25到$ 30百万之间，这使两个人在社交媒体上来回走动，甚至Jon Jones甚至说他’从这项运动中退出或退休。
Without a doubt 琼·琼斯 is the best UFC Light-Heavyweight of all time and 在 the discussion for being 在 the top 3 Greatest of all Time, if not The Greatest of all Time 在 front of Anderson Silva and Georges St-Pierre. Hopefully we see the UFC and Jones settle the financial dispute and we get to see one of the all time greats back 在 the octagon soon.
