(WBNG Binghamton)

Jon Jones has already fought 3 times, and won, and earlier this week was named MMA fighter of the year.
And he's not done.

Jones has one more title defense, and a 3rd fight against a former UFC champion coming up this weekend.

And he says he's not letting the hype get to him, and that he sees some similarities with his situation now and his opponent Lyoto Machida.

" That's why it's taken us quite so seriously. Right now I have the same gloat that Machida had. Jon can't be beat, and this is happening and this is happening. I know that that's not true. And that's what keeps me in the gym, and it keeps me on the prowl, and it keeps me focused."

He is the headline fight at UFC 140 this Saturday night in Toronto.
