Jon Jones is a smarter fighter after recent bouts

BALTIMORE -- In his last three fights, Endicott native Jon "Bones" Jones has faced several scary moments.  There was a vicious arm bar by Vitor Belfort that almost broke the champs arm.  There was a nasty broken toe against Chael Sonnen that the referee failed to notice.  Then there was the match against Alexandre Gustafsson that saw Jones taken down to the canvas of the octagon for the first time in his UFC career.

It's been seven months since the Gustafsson fight, and Jones is a smarter fighter.  He says those recent scares in his title defenses make him realize just how much being Light Heavyweight Champion means to him.
