Jon Jones Is Tired Of Facing Wrestlers, Wants To Mix It Up With Strikers


UFC light heavyweight contender Jon “Bones” Jones,

“I’m actually really sick of fighting this type of style … Matt Hamill, Matyushenko, Jake O’Brien… they all have that similar kind of style. Their main focus is that double leg dive and [they have] sub-par boxing.

“I’m ready to fight some strikers, I’m ready to fight some south paws, I’m ready to really mix it up.” [Fightline]

Jones talking about his next opponent Ryan Bader who is the master of griding out wins with his superior wresting.

Although not official, Jon Jones is expected to take on Ryan Bader at UFC 127 on Feb. 5th in Las Vegas.
