Mason Jones: Fighters At A Glance
On Fighters at a glance we usually tend to focus on a fighter’s UFC career. Today is not the case as we look at UFC fighter Mason Jones who is yet to make his debut in the promotion. Although he hasn’t made his debut in the UFC yet we are going to look at his whole professional career so far.
Debut and early stages of career
Mason made his professional mixed martial arts debut back in October of 2017. He faced Shaun Luther at Cage Warriors 87. This was a dream debut for Mason has he submitted Luther in the third round via rear naked choke. Next up for Mason was a fight at Adrenalin Fight Nights against Brett Hassett and again Mason came out the victor in this fight.
After the Hassett fight another fight on Cage Warriors was up for Mason as he came up against Laurence Tracey. Again Mason couldn’t ask for a better fight as he finished Laurence with some brutal punches in the second round. As Mason went 3-0 in pro MMA people started to turn their attention to the young prospect. Although Mason remained undefeated he remained aware that his opponents were going to get tougher. Mason then fought at Cage Warriors Academy Wales 2 and finished in the third round via rear naked choke.
Another fight on Cage Warriors was next as Mason fought Konmon Deh at Cage Warriors 95. Mason fought himself to a decision victory. Next up was Kacper Formela standing in front of Mason in the octagon. Kacper didn’t seem to challenge Mason too much as he finished him in the first round. Then a fight with Donovan Desmae was arranged. Mason fought his way to another decision win against Desmae. Aleksi Mäntykivi was the man to fight Mason next. Mason continued his dominant streak as he earned himself another decision.

At Cage Warriors 113 Mason fought Joe McColgan for the vacant Cage Warriors Lightweight title. This fight couldn’t have gone any better for Mason as he knocked Joe out in the first round to become the lightweight champion. Before Mason could defend his title, another title fight was offered, this time against Adam Proctor for the vacant Cage Warriors Welterweight title. Mason had another dream title fight as he knocked out Adam in the very first round.
After this fight Mason was both the Cage Warriors Lightweight and Welterweight champion and only the third Cage Warriors double champ in history, following in the footsteps of Conor McGregor and Dan Hardy. Mason has now signed with the UFC and is awaiting his first opponent.
