Jon Jones was born July 19, 1987 and is an American mixed martial artist currently signed with the Ultimate Fighting Championship where he is the current UFC Light Heavyweight Champion. When he won the title in March 2011, he became the youngest champion in UFC history. As of December 2012, he was ranked as the #1 light heavyweight fighter in the world by various media outlets.

At UFC 128, Jones defeated Rua by TKO at 2:37 of round 3 to become the youngest UFC champion ever. After an early flying knee that badly hurt the champion, Shogun was dominated throughout the three rounds. A body shot and knee to the head dropped the champion to his knees, causing the referee to swiftly step in and halt the bout just as Shogun tapped to strikes.

His first title defense was expected to be on August 6, 2011 at UFC 133 against Rashad Evans, his former friend and teammate, but Jones was sidelined with a hand injury. It was initially announced that the hand injury would require surgery, but Jones opted for rest and rehabilitation without surgery after further consultations with doctors. Jones's injury was originally thought to keep him out of action until late 2011, but he instead made his first title defense against Quinton Jackson on September 24, 2011 at UFC 135. Jones defeated Jackson via submission (rear-naked choke) at 1:14 in the 4th round. In the process, he became the first UFC fighter to submit Jackson. Jones has described this as his favourite fight.

Jones vs Evans was in the works for a second time and a bout was targeted for December 10, 2011 at UFC 140. However, a lingering thumb injury cost another title opportunity for Evans, and Jones instead faced Lyoto Machida at the same event. Jones successfully defended the light heavyweight title at UFC 140, stopping Machida at 4:26 of the second round via technical submission (standing guillotine), which caused Machida to collapse unconscious along the cage. This was the first submission loss in Machida's career.

Jones defeated his arch rival and former teammate Rashad Evans via unanimous decision (49-46, 49-46, 50-45) on April 21, 2012 at UFC 145.

During the UFC 145 post fight press conference Dana White confirmed that Jones's next opponent would be Dan Henderson. The Jones-Henderson fight was expected to take place at UFC 151, but an injured Henderson pulled out of the bout, Jones then refused a late replacement fight with Chael Sonnen after his coach Greg Jackson told him with three training days left it would be difficult to prepare. UFC 151 was then subsequently cancelled. It was later reported that Henderson was injured three weeks prior to the announcement but kept the injury under wraps as he was still hoping to compete. However he was ultimately forced to withdraw following a final sparring session to evaluate his condition.

A rematch with Lyoto Machida was then announced for September 22, 2012 at UFC 152, Lyoto Machida who was not contacted prior to the announcement, rejected the fight due to the lack of time to train before the bout. Jones instead defended the championship against Vitor Belfort on September 22, 2012 at UFC 152. Jones opened as a massive favorite (13-to-1) coming into the bout.

Despite almost being submitted via armbar in round one, Jones successfully defended the belt against the Brazilian Belfort, and equaled Chuck Liddell's number of title defenses.[68][69] Jones also won a $65,000 Submission of the Night bonus for his fourth-round americana on Belfort.

His next fight is expected to be against Chael Sonnen after the current series of TUF is finished.
