Is Jon Jones’ 2011 the Best Single Year in MMA History?

December 9, 2011

If UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones can defeat Lyoto Machida that will mark 4 victories, and three title fights in 2011.

Pretty remarkable 12-month period for a fighter whose only been doing MMA for the past 4 years.

The mark was set pretty high during Mauricio ‘Shogun’ Rua’s run through the Pride Grand Prix in 2005, but if Jon Jones wins on Saturday night will he have surpassed that.

Will 2011 go down as the greatest year for any fighter in MMA history?
