For the latest edition of UFC Magazine, UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones was posed underwater in his fighting stance. The picture pays homage to a famous picture of Muhammad Ali.

Though it may seem early in Jones' MMA career to make comparisons to Ali, it's not too early for this picture. Flip Schulke took this iconic picture of Ali in 1961. It was just a year after Ali, still called Cassius Clay, won Olympic gold in Rome. He was a young man who was astonishing the boxing world with his power, speed and footwork. At the time, he was like no other boxer. In the early 60s, he won 19 straight bouts and seemed invincible. Does that remind you of anyone?
