Hendo’s Striking Coach Identifies Holes In Jon Jones Game


“With his age it’s best to wait for a title shot. He got that chance, which is pretty hard to get, so it’s best to way. There’s no problem… I guess Jon Jones wins this [fight against Evans]. They know each other pretty well, actually, but it won’t change much. Jones is a best striker, much taller, a complicated guy to fight against … Rashad hasn’t shown great stand-up skills, he’s no good in comparison to Jones… It would be complicated actually. It’s hard because the guy is tall, but we’re not getting there to lose. He’ll find Jones during the fight… I’ve watched the fight between Jones and Lyoto and I could see some flaws on his stand-up. He’s tall, uses his reach, but he’s not that good technically. Lyoto showed us some of his weak points … It would be a hard fight between Dan and Lyoto because the guy moves a lot. Jones had some trouble finding Lyoto… Dan has great counter-attack and it could make a difference. It’s going to be a puzzle, but it’ll work”.

Dan Henderson’s Muay Thai coach, Daniel Woirin, recently did an interview with Tatame.com and answered questions about a possible future matchup between his student and champion, Jon Jones.

Identifying holes in the game of Jones is one thing, but to actually take advantage of those holes is something no man has so far been able to do.

Is Hendo the one to take him out?
