Dana WhiteUFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones has already put together a Hall of Fame worthy resume and added to it on Saturday with a one-sided unanimous decision win over Glover Teixeira at UFC 172 in Baltimore.

He’s the youngest champion in UFC history, winning the title as a 23-year-old. He has the most successful and consecutive title defenses in the 205-pound division with seven. He holds the longest winning streak in UFC light heavyweight history with eleven.

“I broke my own record with title defenses which makes me feel so good. I’m one fight closer to GSP (Georges St-Pierre), one fight closer to Anderson Silva. I’ve got gigantic goals and I’m trying to take them down one opponent at a time,” said Jones during the UFC 172 Post Fight Show following Saturday’s event.

Jones currently sits atop the world pound-for-pound rankings, and UFC president Dana White believes Jones is on his way to being one of the greatest fighters ever.

“He’s definitely the best pound-for-pound fighter in the world and on his way to being one of the greatest fighters of all time,” said White following the event. “He gets better every time. He gets more confident every time.”

Jones’ next fight will be a rematch with Alexander Gustafsson. He defeated Gustafsson by unanimous decision at UFC 165 in September 2013 in a back-and-forth war. The bout earned the 2013 Fight of the Year.

The date and location of the rematch is unknown, although White on Saturday night said that company officials are considering doing the fight in Sweden, perhaps in a stadium.
