Bones Jones defends his belt once again, so what's next?
Jones used his reach advantage well, but in an extremely unconventional way. He did throw a few jabs to keep Evans at bay, but he really capitalized on some vicious elbows, throwing them more than some fighters throw actual punches.
In his last 5 fights, Jones has now beaten 5 out of the 10 fighters in Sherdog's top 10 list for light heavyweights.
The next logical fight will be against a guy who some consider a title contender in 3 different weight classes. In the past 3 years, Dan Henderson has posted wins over heavyweight legend Fedor Emelianenko, former light heavyweight champ Shogun Rua and middleweight contender Michael Bisping.
According to UFC president Dana White, Hendo will get his title shot against Jones.
If he beats Henderson, Jones' next move could be virtually anything. Perhaps Phil Davis will work his way back up to title contention by then to give Jones a new opponent, or maybe Jones could be placed in a "superfight" against middleweight champion Anderson Silva, or perhaps even try his hand in the heavyweight division.
The way he fought against Evans, a fighter who knows him better than anyone else in the world, it's hard to see Jones losing at light heavyweight anytime soon. A slugger like Henderson has as good a chance as anyone, but it would still be a long shot.
Right now, it's looking like Jones could be one of the most dominant champs the light heavyweight division has ever seen.
Who do you think might be able to give Jones a run for his money? Can anyone beat him at light heavyweight, or does he need to move up to heavyweight to get a real challenge? Let us know what you think in the comments below.
