Jon Jones Impresses at UFC 87

O8xd9j_medium 501og2_medium

Jon Jones has only trained MMA for 9 months, but he made his UFC debut this past weekend, and he convincingly beat Andre Gusmao.  Jones obviously still has a lot to learn, but he showed an incredible amount of potential in this fight, busting out great takedowns and really innovative striking.  He tried a lot of insane stuff, none of which really landed flush, but he kept Gusmao reeling and guessing the entire fight.  I'd like to see him fight the winner of the Houston Alexander vs. Eric Shafer fight, or maybe some of the guys from the WEC that come over.
