UFC 172: 5 Reasons to Watch

UFC light heavyweight champion Jones has his doubters. Always has, always will.

But after being consumed by the shadow of his five-round battle with Gustafsson back in September, a back-and-forth affair that many people believe the challenger won, Bones now has more to prove than ever.

As the quintessential superstar of the sport, one who is without a doubt the UFC’s biggest cash cow in the absence of Georges St-Pierre and Anderson Silva, the 26-year-old needs to regain the unheralded divisional dominance that fueled his legacy in years past.

The quickest way to shake off his somewhat disappointing efforts opposite Gustafsson would be to defeat Teixeira this weekend at UFC 172 quicker than Jason “Mayhem” Miller can say nude sermons.

If that happens, Jones will be able to re-establish this sense of unflappable excellence that reigned supreme just one year ago.

For as close as Gustafsson was to beating the champ, Jones still remains the very best in the sport. His path to immortality is just encountering more hiccups than initially expected.
