"Someone has to get in the ring and not be afraid of him ... His last few fights, you see guys get in the ring with Jon Jones and they know it, you can just see in their body language, [they're thinking] 'At some point in time he's going to do something ridiculous that I can't identify and something's going to hit me and I'm going to wake up later on. The guy can fight you anywhere, he can take you anywhere. But, he's also developed this reputation and this aura about him that's just really intimidating."
-- At just 24-years-young, and with little more than three years of professional mixed martial arts (MMA) experience, UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones is already beating his opponents mentally before they are locked inside a cage with him. That's according to Pat Barry, who explained on today's UFC on Versus 6 conference call that "Bones" is so good, and so dangerous, that he is downright scary. So scary, in fact, that it strikes fear into the hearts and minds of his overmatched opposition. Quinton Jackson, admittedly, couldn't pull the trigger in their recent fight at UFC 135. Mauricio Rua got straight up smoked at UFC 128. In fact, no one to date has even come close figuring out the 6'4" phenom. Boxing's former undisputed heavyweight champion, Mike Tyson, tore through the sport's best with similar ease back in the late 1980s, before Buster Douglas miraculously proved that he was mortal. Fabricio Werdum accomplished a similar feat in MMA when he upended the previously unstoppable Fedor Emelianenko just last year. Is this the beginning of Jones' long journey to perceived invincibility or can someone figure him out sooner than expected?
