Rashad Trained With A Kid, But Now I'm A Man, Says Jones
By Jamie McAllister:
“I’m a very intelligent guy, and everything that Rashad thinks he remembers, I remember so much, and I’m going to use everything that I remember. I feel equally if not more empowered that I used to train with Rashad. I’ll admit in 2010 he was a little bit better of a fighter than me, stronger. If you watch my fights, I was so skinny when I first got to the UFC, I didn’t really have to cut weight. So he was a little better than me, stronger than me, in 2010 when he talks about the time he actually held me down,”
“Fact is in 2011 when I was training for the Ryan Bader fight it was a complete different story. Something switched in 2011 in me and I’ve been finishing fights ever since. I think he’s going to realize, I’m not the 2010 little kid. It’s 2012 now and I’m an adult, and I’m the one that believes whole heartedly, and trains a lot different than I trained in 2010.”
“I’m a guy who’s trying to provide for his kids. This is my job. At the end of the day, it’s how I pay the bills. I have no hatred for him whatsoever. I’m going to go out there, win this fight, and keep moving forward with my life.”
