Dana White: UFC 172 was the ‘best performance of Jon Jones' career’
BALTIMORE – With Jon Jones having defended his light heavyweight belt for the seventh time on Saturday night against Glover Teixeira , there was a feeling that he’d broken with the sublime and was now catering more towards the historic. Heading into UFC 172 Jones had already beaten what Dana White refers to as the "murderers row" of the best 205-pounders, a record run that has established him as the best pound-for-pound fighter in the game. So in the chain of glorious outings, and with his "prime" still in front of him, where did White see his performance against Teixeira, whom Jones dominated for five rounds on Saturday night en-route to a unanimous decision? "I think it was the best performance of his career," White said in the post-fight press conference about the 26-year old Jones. "Obviously Las Vegas didn’t give Glover Teixeira the respect that he deserved as a 6-to-1 dog. Jones, I think that if he didn’t prove it in the [Alexander] Gustafsson fight, he definitely proved it in this fight -- Jones has a chin. He evolves every time he fights, he comes out and puts on a clinic and does new things.

Fighter Diet Beginner Tips
2. New to exercise? Pace yourself! yes, you are physically capable of doing a good hour every day, but you shouldn't go all out being a beginner. You will run risk of overusing your joints, strain muscles and burn out mentally from increasing stress too fast. training volume must be built up progressively over several weeks/months/years. When doing it too fast your body gets worried and tries to stop you. Yes, it's cool you say "nothing can stop me", but... try that when your knees are sore, your ankles hurt, your elbows too, your lower back is cramping and you are only thinking of food and sleeping! You need to detox yourself from bad habits little by little.

Jon Jones Back on the Wave of Domination, but Doesn't Want to Talk About Gustafsson Just Yet | MMAWeekly.com
Teixeira had won 20 consecutive bouts, including five under the UFC banner, before stepping into the Octagon opposite the UFC light heavyweight champion. But he had never faced the likes of Jones or the laundry list of opponents that Jones has defeated to be considered the top pound-for-pound fighter on the planet.
Following spinal fusion surgery, Dan Miller looking to return to the Octagon in late summer or fall
The all clear to get back to training came in February, and since that time Miller has slowly been getting back into the swing of things. He did admit that there is some trepidation that comes along with getting back into training. "I try and put it out of my head," said Miller. "But it's something that is there. I just started rolling a little bit, and it is there - the thought is there, but I think, as I get more comfortable it will go away."
Dana White: Jon Jones is on His Way to Being One of the Greatest of All Time | MMAWeekly.com
“He’s definitely the best pound-for-pound fighter in the world and on his way to being one of the greatest fighters of all time,” said White following the event. “He gets better every time. He gets more confident every time.”
@ google - I actually think in a lot of ways it is more impressive to have that win streak spread over 3-4 years. It allows the game to evolve, and makes the fighter continually evolve with it. It also allows opponents to view tape and really study you as a fighter, which means you cannot surprise people with the same style/moves again and again. Royce was dominant because his opponents were unfamiliar with even the basics of BJJ, had no time to learn it, and didn't know how to defend it. Anderson and GSP are dominant simply because they are better than the competition.
By the Numbers: UFC 172

UFC 172. | Patrick Smith/Zuffa LLC/Getty Images
At 26 years old, Jon Jones has
yet to reach his prime. That should be a scary thought for anyone
who witnessed the light heavyweight champion’s five-round
domination of Glover
Teixeira in the UFC
172 headliner at the Baltimore Arena on Saturday night.
“Bones” showcased his usual diverse arsenal in taking a unanimous
decision over Teixeira, but he was perhaps most effective in close
quarters, where he battered the Brazilian with a barrage of punches
and elbows against the fence. While the challenger was resilient
enough to make it to the judges, he was unable to put together
enough offense to consistently threaten the Jackson-Wink MMA
product. Here is a by-the-numbers look at UFC
172 , with statistics courtesy of FightMetric.com.
138: Significant strikes landed by Jones, which
surpasses his previous career best of 134 against Alexander
Gustafsson at UFC 165. By comparison, Teixeira landed 53

Jones tightened his grip on the Ultimate Fighting Championship
light heavyweight title with some close-quarters savagery.
Jones controlled and overwhelmed Glover
Teixeira with his diverse standup arsenal, retaining his
205-pound championship with a lopsided unanimous decision in the
UFC 172 main event on Saturday at the Baltimore Arena in Baltimore.
“Bones” pitched a shutout on the scorecards, as he took all five
rounds in the eyes of all three cageside judges.
Teixeira had no answer for the superior skills and athleticism with
which he was faced. Jones was effective at a distance, but he did
his best work in the clinch. There, he attacked the John Hackleman
protégé with a series of short slashing elbows, one of which opened
a gnarly diagonal cut above the Brazilian’s right eye. Teixeira
fired back in response, but his heavy hands seemed to have no
effect on the relentless Jones. According to preliminary
FightMetric figures, the champion out-landed the challenger by a
staggering 138 to 53 margin in terms of significant strikes; he
also secured the only three takedowns of the match.

Eric & Fighter Diet Fat Loss By Mind power
My Achilles' heel in staying true to my Fighter diet/working out is "rewarding" myself like having cheat meals (yes, plural) on the weekends and growing impatient with small-but-not-enough results.

Jon Jones' NFL brother Arthur nearly gave MMA a shot in 2011
With Arthur’s football career in full swing, he might not ever realize his onetime dream of competing in the cage. But with a Super Bowl title to his name, earned during his time with the Baltimore Ravens, Arthur isn’t hurting in terms of professional sporting accomplishment, even as his brother can claim the title of UFC champion. Jon defended his 205-pound title on Saturday night with a dominant win over Glover Teixeira at UFC 172 in Baltimore, where Arthur played for four years for the Ravens before signing with the Colts in March.

“Bisping’s a guy that opened his mouth and he’s still running it,” Kennedy said at the UFC 172 post-fight press conference. “I don’t think Tim Kennedy closed it yet, so I’d love to shut him up for good.”
MMA had been in a rut the last few months. Some recent fight cards have made fans never want to watch MMA again. This card wasn’t one of them. UFC 172 helped MMA not suck. There’s stuff to look forward to now. Let’s hope the trend continues.
Fighter Diet: Lean by Keep it Simple
It's pretty simple in theory: just stop eating crap! Stop talking yourself into cheat meals benefit you or that those cookies are ok. There is no such thing as comfort eating in my book. Don't be naive, you think you'll be happier with that junk in your trunk? Heck no! Deal with it and stop complaining! Listen, we all know we were conditioned by society and our parents to stick something sweet into our mouth whenever we felt down, but that was then, now is different. be a grown up, be responsible for your actions!

Joe Silva's Shoes: What's next for UFC 172's winners?
The most obvious matchup for “Rumble” going forward is to fight the winner of UFC 173’s co-main event between Daniel Cormier (14-0 MMA, 3-0 UFC) and Dan Henderson (30-11 MMA, 7-5 UFC). UFC officials have said the Cormier vs. Henderson winner could get a title shot, but with a jam atop the weight class, they will need to get past Johnson a solidify a shot at the belt.
The Soundtrack to UFC 172: Jones vs. Teixeira - The Walkout Songs
Over the course of his last several fights, Jones has started to do a mash-up of walkout tunes usually starting with something from 50 Cent and ending with a Bob Marley track, but for his fight at UFC 172, the champ decided to make a change. Before walking to the cage Jones opted to play the Nelly track 'Hot in Herre', which was the same song used by Lewis when he entered the playing field in Baltimore. Jones even did his customary 'dance' as he got ready to walk to the cage.

Now that Johnson is fighting at the weight class he belongs in, well, watch out. Johnson looked like a machine against Phil Davis on Saturday night. Without an excessive weight cut slowing him down, Johnson has a newfound gas tank. He's putting all his tools together. Johnson put up a division-shaking performance at UFC 172 one that should give everyone at 205 pounds not named Jon Jones pause.

Jim Miller wants fight with Khabib Nurmagomedov after UFC 172 win
A win over Nurmagomedov would do wonders for Miller’s career in the 155-pound division. “The Eagle” has won five straight since his successful debut at UFC on FX 1 and recently notched a high-profile win over top-10 ranked Rafael dos Anjos. It would help the UFC, too, which has struggled to find opponents willing to tussle with the Sambo and wrestling standout. It might even help Nurmagomedov, who’s called out name opponents such as Nate Diaz to no avail .
