Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) light heavyweight kingpin Jon Jones is 20-1, and recently broke the promotion's record for successful 205-pound title defenses. And outside of a close unanimous decision win over Alexander Gustafsson, he's made the entire division look foolish. He's clearly one of, or perhaps the best mixed martial arts (MMA) fighters on the planet. So why doesn't he enjoy the mass appeal that comes with those types of accolades? UFC color commentator Joe Rogan, using former read news >>

And Lesnar retired from mixed martial arts (MMA) nearly three years ago. That victory marked "Demolition Man's" first as a UFC fighter, but he would stumble in his next two fights after getti read news >>
