Mason Jones started doing martial arts in 2002. He started kickboxing when he was only 7 years old. When he was 12 he started doing Judo, and later got into Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, as well as training boxing and wrestling.
Mason Jones was originally scheduled to make his professional MMA-debut against Brett Hassett at Cage Warriors 83, but Hassett pulled out of the fight, due to medical reasons. Therefore the bout became an amateur bout, and he fought David Adonis instead. A fight that he won by Kimura, in the first round.
Jones then finally made his professional MMA-debut at Cage Warriors 87, against Shaun Luter. A fight that he won by Rear naked choke, at the end of the third round. 
After a couple of more wins in Cage Warriors, he took on Belgian fighter: Donovan Desmae, in his 7th fight, at Cage Warriors 104. Jones won the fight dominantly, only losing one round, on one of the judges scorecards. He won the fight by unanimous decision. 
Mason Jones was then matched up with submission-specialist, Joe McCologan. The fight was set to take place, for the Cage Warriors Lightweight Championship, at [[Cage Warriors 113]. Jones came out aggressive, and at the end of the first round, Jones landed a knee that dropped McCologan. He followed up with some ground and pound, that finished the fight and made Mason Jones the Cage Warriors Lightweight Champion.
At Cage Warriors 116 Mason Jones was matched up against British fighter Adam Proctor for the vacant Cage Warriors Welterweight Title. Mason Jones put pressure on the English-man from the beginning, and ended the fight via TKO, at 4 minutes 29 seconds, of the first round. This win made him a double champion at Cage Warriors.
