UFC 135: Jon Jones 'It's Dangerous to Become Obsessed With Belts'

Later this month Jon Jones hopes to defend his light heavyweight title against Quinton Jackson at UFC 135 in Denver. The road to this fight has been filled with accusations of espionage and talk of injuries. In the above video, Jon Jones makes it clear that he doesn't see this as any different of a fight than any other on his record. 

Jones has adopted a "warrior" persona. He states that he isn't concerned with belts or recognition. While this may be overstatement on his part, it is hard to argue that he hasn't reinvented himself over and over again. Quintion Jackson will be facing a tough Jon Jones on the 24th. 

Jones is riding a four fight winning streak into this fight. He's dominated the likes of Ryan Bader and Mauricio Rua to become the man on top and he doesn't want to lose his spot in the division. Jackson is trying to reestablish himself as the top dog of the division since dropping the title to Forrest Griffin at UFC 86. He's currently on a two fight win streak with decisions over Lyoto Machida and Matt Hamill.
