CareerEdit

He began his fighting career in Extreme Fighting.[citation needed] His first match against Erik Paulson resulted in a draw. Jones immediately went into USWF (Unified Shoot Wrestling Federation) after his draw and won by submission. Jones then tried Shooto, which is located in Tokyo, where he won his second match by decision.[citation needed] Jones went back into USWF and won seven more matches resulting in nine consecutive wins. He finally made it into the UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship) and won his match with Flavio Luiz Moura. He was on a roll fighting in mixed martial arts until his next match came up against Chuck Liddell, a legend rising in UFC. Jones gave everything he had, but Chuck Liddell won by TKO (technical knock out). Jones went back into USWF and fought his last match against Junior Baeza and won.[citation needed]
