Jon Jones on ESPN SportsNation poll: 'Bones' not as awesome as WWE's 'The Rock' (Video)

If you've ever seen Jon Jones fight, you'd probably agree he's pretty awesome inside the Octagon -- just not awesome enough to make him "The Most Awesomest Dude of 2011."

Not yet.

That's because he's currently trailing World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) superstar "The Rock," who has millions (and millions) of fans willing to cast their vote in favor of the part-time movie star in the ESPN SportsNation poll.

The Rock can next be seen as "Roadblock" in the upcoming G.I. Joe movie sequel "Retaliation."

Jones captured the UFC light heavyweight championship by putting the smackdown on Mauricio Rua at UFC 128 earlier this year and finished his 2011 fight campaign with a win over Lyoto Machida at UFC 140 last Saturday night (Dec. 10) on pay-per-view from the Air Canada Center in Toronto.

Those victories, coupled with his destruction of both Ryan Bader and Quinton Jackson, give Jones four wins this year, which is unquestionably "awesome" when you consider his level of opposition. But is it awesome enough to overcome the "People's Champion," Dwayne Johnson, who holds crossover appeal in Hollywood?

Find out by voting here. Just one vote can save the life of an iPad in ESPN offices around the world.
