With five wins and one disqualification loss in the UFC, Jon Jones has removed all doubt as to his capacity to become champion of the light heavyweight division. Against Vladimir Matyushenko this Sunday at UFC on Versus 2, Jones had a walk in the park.
“Truth is that I trained as hard as I could. I knew Vladimir would be a tough test, I just trained and things went well,” remarked the fighter.
At only 23 years of age, Jones is seeing the number of possibilities for him increase in the organization. His shot at the light heavyweight belt is getting closer and closer, but that’s not enough.
“I train really hard, and my goal is to become one of the best in the world, if not just the best in my weight division.”
Now there seem to be endless possibilities for matchups in the stacked division. But the fighter isn’t worried about that.
“Whoever the UFC puts in front of me, I’m ready. It may be a cliché, but Joe Silva’s the man, he does a great job and I’ll leave it (picking his opponent) up to him,” he said from within the octagon.
