Bones: “I’ve been doing some autograph signings and I’ve been signing ‘Jon Jones Champion 2011′”

UFC light heavyweight number one contender, Jon Jones is so confident of dethroning current title holder, Mauricio “Shogun” Rua this weekend at UFC 128 in Newark, New Jersey that he’s already signing autographs as the Champ.

Jones, speaking during last night’s Countdown to UFC 128 show, said:

“It’s funny, I’ve been doing some autograph signings and I’ve been signing lately ‘Jon Jones Champion 2011,’ almost as if I’ve spoken it into existence. I just think it’s crazy.”

Jones has been made the favourite for this fight with betting lines, fans, and critics alike due to the dominant way he’s blown through fighters like Stephan Bonnar, Brandon Vera and most recently Ryan Bader.
