"It's funny, I've been doing some autograph signings and I've been signing lately 'Jon Jones Champion 2011,' almost as if I've spoken it into existence. I just think it's crazy."
Too soon? Light heavyweight number one contender Jon Jones, who recently admitted he was already referring to himself as "New UFC Light Heavyweight Champion," has taken it one step further by signing autographs as the new 205-pound kingpin. The only problem is he still has to make his dream a reality by defeating reigning division champion Mauricio "Shogun" Rua at UFC 128 this Saturday night (March 19) in Newark, NJ. Can he back up the comments he made on last night's UFC "Countdown" show and usurp the throne in "Brick City?" Or will the dream become a nightmare against the dangerous Brazilian on fight night? Let's hear your opinions Maniacs, is Jones being confident -- or cocky?
