Last-Minute Jon Jones Video Hype: ‘Man on the Moon’

(Props: Neon Bar Fights via MiddleEasy)

Not only does UFC light-heavyweight contender Jon Jones have a lot of hype, his hype has a lot of hype. By that I mean, Jones’s lofty reputation has become a major talking point in itself. Ryan Bader wants to end that hype at UFC 126; Jones wants to transcend it. On Sunday morning, Bones could be living with his first real defeat, while keyboard warriors claim he was never that great in the first place.

That’s because hype is fragile. Legacy, on the other hand, can never be taken away — and if Jones slashes through Bader tomorrow night, he’ll be one step closer to securing his own. What really makes Jon Jones interesting is that his journey in the sport is just beginning. His pro debut was in April 2008, less than three years ago. The path in front of him is limitless.

Anyway, check out this highlight reel, because it’s honestly one of the best we’ve ever seen.

I bet it wouldnt happen to be the best because it has a CP clip in it?

I don't think Jones is going to be able to throw Bader around like he has everyone else. People point out that he did it to Hamil but while Hamil is obviously a great wrestler I don't think he has the strength or agility that bader has. That said. I just don't see what Bader will have to say to Jone's matrix style stand up.

Round 1 ko by spinning elbow from the clinch

I'm rooting against Jones in this fight (I'm not sure why), but I don't think Bader will be able to do it. If Bader can put Jones on his back, things will get interesting.

Awesome vid! Why can't all mma highlight reel videos be this good?

Gotta give the nod to Bonesy in this one. Hype or no, he's still twice the striker Bader is.

Haven't been this pumped about a UFC card since 100.

Man I hope Jones gets lit up in this fight. His flashy style and mediocre opponents have given this guy WAY more hype than he needs.
