In a division with such parody, Jon Jones has been the exception. From 2007-2010 , the UFC light heavyweight belt changed hands five times, with only Lyoto Machida and Quinton "Rampage" Jackson successfully defending the title.
Jones won the belt from Mauricio "Shogun" Rua in March of 2011 and defended it twice in 2011 with victories over both Rampage and Machida. Jones already has the most light heavyweight title defenses since Chuck Liddell.
Jones comes into his next title defense against his former teammate Rashad Evans as a heavy favorite. Jones is -500 in the eyes of the Las Vegas oddsmakers, and Evans is a +350 underdog. The line shows how dominant Vegas believes Jones is, as Evans is Jones' toughest fight, and Jones is still a substantial favorite.
