It’s been rumored and an obvious choice, but on Saturday the UFC made it official. Light heavyweight champ Jon Jones will defend his title in the main event of UFC 145.
The epic five-round war between Dan Henderson and Mauricio “Shogun” Rua at UFC 139 had many calling it the best fight in history. That is up for debate, but calling it the best scrap of 2011 isn’t any kind of a stretch.
Jon Jones went an amazing 4-0 in 2011 – including three wins in light heavyweight title fights. The youngest-ever champ in the UFC had arguably the most impressive single year in MMA history and is our Fighter of the Year.
