Jon Jones is living "In the Moment."
As the new light heavyweight number one contender heads into his UFC 128 title fight against Mauricio Rua this Saturday night (March 19) from the Prudential Center in Newark, NJ, Johnny "Bones" will be featured in his own 30-minute special detailing his rise to mixed martial arts superstardom.
Jon Jones: "In the Moment" airs Thursday night (March 17) at 11 p.m. ET on SpikeTV.
After Rashad Evans withdrew from the March 19 event due to injury, Jones was awarded the short-notice title fight following his first round submission win over Ryan Bader at UFC 126 back on Feb. 5 in Las Vegas.
