Despite some run-ins with the law and some speculation regarding whether or not he has knowingly used performance enhancing drugs (PEDs) throughout his career, his resume is undeniable.

Aside from one fluke loss early in his tenure with the UFC on a technicality, Jones has beaten all challengers in fairly dominant fashion.

And while he may not be a model citizen outside of the cage, his talent within it is absolutely remarkable.

Currently he is coming off the most challenging title defense of his career against Thiago Santos, and his future is uncertain.

Jones could be next in line to move up to heavyweight to face Stipe Miocic. He may also choose to stay at light heavyweight and grant another title shot to former champion Daniel Cormer.

It also would not be particularly shocking to see him stay true to form from his most recent few title defenses and give a fight to someone in his division like Corey Anderson, Jan Blachowicz, Johnny Walker or Dominick Reyes.
