Jon Jones Biography

Jon Jones was born July 19, 1987 and is an American mixed martial arts fighter. He currently fights as a light heavyweight in the Ultimate Fighting Championship and initially trained with Team BombSquad out of Cortland, New York, then briefly with the Tristar Gym in Montreal, Canada, and most recently started training at Jackson's Submission Fighting in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Jones' debut UFC fight was against Andre Gusmao at UFC 87 on August 9, 2008. Jones took the fight on three weeks notice as a late replacement for Tomasz Drwal. He put on an impressive performance using takedowns and displayed some unorthodox striking, such as spinning elbows and a spinning back kick. Even though he came into the fight widely regarded as a heavy underdog, Jones was rewarded with a unanimous decision victory.

In his second fight, Jones fought veteran Stephan Bonnar at UFC 94 on January 31, 2009. Jones showed superior wrestling abilities and made Bonnar the victim of many strong takedowns and powerful throws including a suplex. Again showing unorthodox striking, Jones dropped Bonnar with a spinning back elbow in the first round. Although he appeared to tire in the third round, Jones held on to win another unanimous decision victory.

His third fight was against Jake O'Brien at UFC 100 on July 11, 2009. Jones controlled the majority of the fight, preferring not to grapple and stuffing any takedown attempts from his opponent. Jones stayed on the outside, exercising his reach advantage and seemed to find his range toward the end of the first round with his right jab and high and low kicks. Midway through the second round Jones ducked and spun to deliver his trademark spinning back elbow which skimmed the top of OBriens head and rocked him into immediately grappling to try and regain composure. Jones capitalized on the flustered state of O'Brien by taking his neck and locking in a modified guillotine choke which rendered his opponent unconscious even after he tapped.

On December 5, 2009 Jones faced off against fellow light heavyweight prospect Matt Hamill at The Ultimate Fighter: Heavyweights Finale. Despite completely dominating the fight, Jones was controversially disqualified for the use of an illegal elbow. During the fight Matt Hamill's shoulder was injured and was taken down by Jon Jones. On the ground Jones dealt many blows, but in the sequence of blows Jones dealt that ended the fight he delivered two illegal elbow blows. Jones used the illegal 12-to-6 (Up and Down) method. He was deducted one point, but Hamill could not continue. It was thought that Jones had won the fight but it was announced that he was disqualified for the elbow.
