Jon Jones Needs Another Year, Big Win Before Title Shot

Jon JonesThe hype surrounding top light heavyweight prospect Jon Jones continued to rise on Sunday, after “Bones” demolished former heavyweight contender Brandon Vera en route to a first-round TKO in the main event of UFC on Versus 1.

But despite the impressive victory, the biggest in the young career of the rising 22-year-old, UFC President Dana White said that Jones needs another year of action, as well as a victory over one of the division’s top fighters, before a potential title shot.

“I’d like to see him get another year under his belt.” said White at the event’s post-fight press conference. “And in that year, before he got a shot at the title, he’d have to take out Rashad (Evans), “Rampage”(Quinton Jackson), possibly “Shogun” (Mauricio Rua) or (Lyoto) Machida, then get the title shot.”
