                    <p>It is common place for articles on mixed martial arts website and in mixed martial arts print magazine, but with main stream acceptance of the sport often comes more main stream coverage. For their November issue, Rolling Stones magazine did a piece on UFC&nbsp;Lightheavyweight champion Jon Jones. An excerpt of that article is available below</p>

Jon "Bones" Jones sits in a wheelchair, two plastic bags stuffed with ice resting on his big, bruised feet. It's near midnight in Denver, and half an hour ago in front of 16,000 fans, Jones thrashed Quinton "Rampage" Jackson in elegant, but vicious, fashion, choking out the former light-heavyweight champion to retain his UFC title belt.

The September victory cemented Jones' status as the most brutal practitioner of precision fury in the UFC. In fact, Jones may be the best fighter the world of mixed martial arts has ever seen. Blessed with a six-foot-four frame and a freakish athleticism that runs in the family (his brother Arthur plays linebacker for the Baltimore Ravens), Jones, 24, brings a set of skills the UFC could only dream of in its early days of eye-gouging and head butts. His moves – spinning elbows, flying knee kicks – seem like the stuff of kung-fu flicks, and yet he's just as deadly on the ground. Urijah Faber, one of MMA's biggest stars, says Jones could become the Michael Jordan of the sport. "I don't really know what to say to that," Jones says as a trainer adjusts the ice on his feet, which are nearly broken from all the punishing kicks delivered to Jackson. "I don't want to sound cocky, but I do hold myself in high regard."

Rolling Stone needs to get back to music.

well at least he's a better option than Travis Lutter.

Lmao. Being a life long resident of Chicago, I find that highly offensive. These people need to get a grip.

"I do hold myself in high regard"

LOL

 The Michael Jordan of MMA hasn't arrived on scene yet, ive it 10 years.

Forrest also beat shogun and also beat Rampage for the strap does that make him the Larry Bird of MMA? Does that then make Anderson Silva the Magic Johnson of MMA for skullfucking Forrest?? very confusing.

Seriously, why does the site constantly fuck up its headlines?

cjscore - Rolling Stone needs to get back to music.

For sure ... He is talented but has to have a lot more fights than what he does to be considered in that regard ... Lol he hasn't even been the champion that long and defended it once ... Phone Post

TaxMurderer - Forrest also beat shogun and also beat Rampage for the strap does that make him the Larry Bird of MMA? Does that then make Anderson Silva the Magic Johnson of MMA for skullfucking Forrest?? very confusing.

Nevermind, the article title on the site does reference MJ.

Does Jones have a Hitler mustache, too?
