It's getting clearer and clearer by the day that Jon Jones isn't just man of the hour material. He has long proved not to be a transitional champion, as opposed to the formers that came before him in the 205-lbs division.
But Sunday's decisive victory over personal foe Rashad Evans established one significant point: Jon Jones has now defeated every light heavyweight out there that deserves a shot. He has stirred clear of Shogun, Rampage, Evans, and Machida - four of whom constantly contended for the title for many years. Matchmakers are now in a pickle, and for that alone Bones easily earns this week's bullseye mark.
Greatness surrounds today's sports story: a Timberwolves star shaves and changes his signature look, two MVP candidates vye for the honor of this season's scoring title, and one angas heavyweight fighter officially earns a title shot against Junior Dos Santos. Hit it!
