In March of 2011, at the age of 23, Jon Jones defeated PRIDE legend Mauricio “Shogun” Rua to win the UFC light heavyweight title and become the youngest champion in UFC history. Today – which is his birthday – Jones is 30 years old. And though he has been involved in a litany of legal troubles over the last few years, which have included everything from DUIs to cocaine possession, Jones assures he is growing up.

On the eve of his birthday, the former champion assured that there would be no partying for him, just a good night’s sleep.

Jones then assured, however, that after his UFC 214 battle with Daniel Cormier, which marks his chance to reclaim light heavyweight gold, he will be turning “all the way up.” The light heavyweight great plans to do so in a different country, away from the watchful eye of media outlets like TMZ.

When he was wished a happy birthday from a fan from Mexico, Jones then suggested that this could be the location of his massive afterparty.
