Previewish – UFC 100 – Jon Jones vs. Jake O’Brien

July 8, 2009

When there are UFC events, I’m going to do short previews for every single fight on the card individually. Or maybe just the fights schedule for the untelevised undercard. It’ll be a great chance to try and get to know the lesser known guys that fill out the spaces in the PPV shows that are created after quick stoppages. Sometimes, they make the PPV worth the buy.

Jon “Bones” Jones (8-0) vs. Jake “Irish” O’Brien (11-2)

Light Heavyweights

jon-jonesThis is a match up of young fighters with all the potential in the world. Jon Jones is undefeated and looks downright imposing for a LHW. Jones has gone the distance in either of his UFC victories. The Endicott, NY native last beat Stephan Bonnar in January with a unanimous decision.

Jake O’Brien was an undefeated heavyweight until he ran into Andrei Arlovski and Cain Velasquez. Apparently getting TKO’d by two top of the heap guys will make you reconsider your career path. He made his LHW debut at UFC 94 against Christian Wellisch and won a split-decision to get back on the winning track. Jones will be as tough a test as he could expect at this rung on the LHW-ladder.
