Is Jon Jones' 2011 The Best Single Year in MMA History?
This video is hosted from www.youtube.com
If UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones can defeat Lyoto Machida that will mark 4 victories, and three title fights in 2011.
Pretty remarkable 12-month period for a fighter whose only been doing MMA for the past 4 years.
The mark was set pretty high during Mauricio 'Shogun' Rua's run through the Pride Grand Prix in 2005, but if Jon Jones wins on Saturday night will he have surpassed that.
Will 2011 go down as the greatest year for any fighter in MMA history?

UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones has a tremendous amount of respect for Lyoto Machida ahead of UFC 140, but he still believes he'll pick up his 4th win in 2011 in dominant fashion.
Jones has watched all of Machida's fights in the UFC, and while he believes that every fighter is capable of evolving, he knows that the Brazilian has been figured out before and he can figure him out this time as well.
"How are you going to solve Lyoto Machida's puzzle? Well, it's been solved already," said Jones.
