"Championship Stats: At 23 years, eight months, became the youngest champion in UFC history when he defeated Mauricio Rua for the light heavyweight title at UFC 128 in March 2011.

"At 24 years, two months, five days, became the youngest fighter in UFC history to defend a championship belt when he defeated Quinton Jackson at UFC 135.

"Title reign of 917 days (as of Sunday) is the second longest in divisional history behind Tito Ortiz (1,260 days).

"Streak of five consecutive light heavyweight title defenses are tied with Ortiz for the most in the history of the weight class. A win at UFC 165 would give Jones sole possession of the record.  His four UFC title fights in a 364-day span between Sept. 24, 2011 and Sept. 22, 2012, are the most in modern UFC history."
