Both anchoring an impressive fighting record, Jon Jones and Ryan Bader is like a match made in heaven in the UFC scene. But with some circumstances requiring Bader to take the time off, locking horns with Jones seems to be near yet so far.

The blue-chip light heavyweights Jon Jones and Ryan Bader is set to square off in early 2011, with a date yet to be assigned.

Since making his UFC debut in August 2008, Jon Jones has been regarded as one of the most dynamic fighters on the international scene. With a record of 11-1, his sole defeat came via disqualification after giving illegal elbows against Matt Hamill. Following that, Jones took out Brandon Vera and Vladimir Matyunshenko via first-round TKOs. On the other hand, Ryan Bader began his UFC career after winning the TUF Season 8 handily.

Jones Knocks Out Matyushenko at UFC on Versus 2

Jones took down Matt Hamill in December with wild elbows on the ground. He did the same to Brandon Vera last March, and that's what Jones did to Vladimir Matyushenko last Sunday. Jones really found a winning formula and he's sticking with it.

It was a short Sunday night for Jon Jones, after crippling Vladimir Matyushenko with vicious elbow hit at UFC on Versus 2. Jones dismantled Matyunshenko just 1:52 after the opening period. The former swiftly moved into dominant position, tying up the latter’s arms into crucifix. It was referee Herb Dean that ended the barrage, after Jones hammered the defenseless Matyushenko with no less than 10 elbows. This move is indeed an excellent fighting strategy for Jon Jones.

“My goal is to become one of the best in the world, if not the best in my weight class,” Jones said. “Whoever the UFC decides to give me, I’ll be ready for it. I’ll train my butt off, and I just hope that Joe Silva and Dana [White] really kick it up with me and give me some really, really tough guys.”
