Asked to step up on short notice and fight for the UFC light heavyweight title, Jon Jones proved why he would soon become the pound-for-pound top fighter in the world.

Jones defeated Mauricio “Shogun” Rua at just 23 years old, winning the title he holds to this day.

In January, “Bones” will return to the Octagon, defending his belt against Daniel Cormier at UFC 182. You can relive the entire Jones-Rua fight in the video below:
