Jon Jones on Saturday night answered a lot of questions about how good he is. He stepped in the Octagon with a man with many more years of experience than he has, a man that has “been there, done that” and then some.

But Jon Jones dominated Mauricio “Shogun” Rua from the opening bell, never giving him a chance to get any offense going.

Now that the UFC light heavyweight championship is wrapped around his waist, the question isn’t how good is Jon Jones, but how good is this guy gonna be?

UFC president Dana White and UFC 128 winners Jim Miller, Urijah Faber, Brendan Schaub, and Nate Marquardt weighed in on the subject. Here is what they had to say…

    Bear witness, people. Jon “Bones” Jones is the real deal. Uriah Faber referred to Bones as the next Ali — the next Jordan. The California Kid may be more prophetic than even he realizes. Only time will tell, of course, but if I were a betting man I’d lay it all down on Jones to win his next 10 fights regardless of who opposes him — The Spider and Cain included. Bones is a freak. So sit back and enjoy the show as you watch the the birth of a legend.

    I am a huge Fedor fan and I consider him the greatest ever, the Muhammad Ali of MMA.

    However, after seeing Jones perform, I am convinced that Fedor is just a small spark before the big bang. That goes for Anderson Silva, GSP, and BJ Penn. All of them are, or were, dominant champions.

    But I think Jones might be the thing, even more so than Cain. With Cain, I could see a few interesting matches , example: JDS, Carwin and Overeem. But with Jones, I can see no interesting matches except at HW.

    Watch, Jones is going to clear out the LHW division within 2 years. Lyoto, Rashad, and Rampage are going down very soon.

    Then he will move up to HW and fight Cain or whoever is the champ then.

    I’ve been watching this sport 10+ years and I’ve never seen anyone like J. Jones.
