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.”

    Let’s be real JJ got the belt as long as hr wants and could take the HW strap just as easy

  2. Fedor says:

    Jones would crush me all day in my prime that’s why I stay at HW even though I could loose a few pounds

  3. Kingsforge says:

    He’s got the LHW belt for sure, but the HW belt not so sure about. For sure he could bulk up, but JDS and Overeem? (If he clears his roid case) They’d eat him purely on mass alone, plus JDS hit’s like a tank.

  4. jew jitsu says:

    There is a lot of guys at heavyweight
    Jon jokes can’t takedown ..
    And then what ?
    This ain’t 205
    Everyone at heavyweight hits alot harder
    Then u got the guys who could takedown
    Jonny boy
    And then what ?

  5. Eugene C says:

    Come on now let’s be realistic. He won’t have any range or power on these HW guys. Sure he can beat some of them, but JDS will be taking it to him and probably knocking him out. Look how much trouble machida was giving him before getting taken down.

    • Andyk says:

      But it wud not be an overnight thing he wud bulk up to about 250 and be just as strong and he the longest reach in the ufc even longer then Stefan Struve who’s almost 7 feet tall not to mention the fact his athleticism is confusing and impossible to handle

  6. pthance says:

    Lol, I remember when I was 24 years old and thought I was grown too.

  7. TrigenicKin says:

    His fakeness is giving me cancer.

  8. HaVaginaButts says:

    Headline is misleading. I was going to rip Bones for calling himself a man because no man does that, but he just explained the difference between himself as a fighter 2 years ago compared to now.

  9. Sean says:

    can we just retitle all of these john jones articles “Jon Jones says some cocky shit. World in Shock.”

  10. Pancho says:

    Why do people say Jones is cocky when Rashad is the cockiest faggot ever?
