Top 5 most difficult matches of Jon Jones’ career (Part 1)

The same point 5 times as if the defeat of former UFC heavyweight champion Jon Jones.

Vitor Belfort – UFC 152

Vitor Belfort is probably not the easiest person to trouble Jon Jones. However, Vitor Belfort was the closest one to the possibility of ending the heavyweight UFC monument.

At UFC 152, after a series of overwhelming situations, Vitor Belfort unexpectedly took a dangerous position and hit the armbar. This armbar was so deep that fans thought Jon Jones’ arm was about to be broken. However, the iron will and unbelievable calmness of Jon Jones, the young champion at that time went upstream and successfully broke Americana’s arm on Vitor Belfort.

If at that time, Vitor Belfort is successful, it is likely that Jon Jones’s career will change a lot. One is learning from failure and being stronger, or failing from it. Anyway, history has no price tag and Jon Jones won convincingly.

Jon Jones reconsidered his victory over Lyoto Machida

However, that is also the death of the Brazilian MMA legend – he only has one fighting strategy. In the first half, Machida succeeded with the anti-turret tactic and counterattack with his left hand, but the lack of flexibility and tactical flexibility made the coach Jon Jones find the gap.

Jon Jones did as he did and as a result, Machida received a blow when he was about to hit a straight left forte. This punch changed the game, giving Jones a chance to force Machida’s cage and perform a guillotine strangle that left Machida unconscious shortly after. The UFC Karate legend collapsed like a bun and the UFC championship was still on Jon Jones’s waist.
