Jon Jones Says The Killer Instict He Lacked In Evans Fight Will Be Present Against Belfort | UFC NEWS

“With Rashad, I think a part of me saw a guy that I had sparred against, and I don’t know – some of those elbows were definitely malicious, but my killer instinct was just not there for some reason. I was more focused – and I hate to say this – on just winning that fight. I’m not going to sit here and say I took it easy, but there was something in my bones that didn’t allow me to really, really try to really hurt him and I think that was a small part about why I couldn’t finish Rashad. To his credit, Rashad is an awesome warrior. He only lost once in like 20-something fights. Me and Rashad are both gifted. We’re both winners. Our styles are different, entertainment factors could be different, but at the end of the day, we’re both winners. To go against a winner, and I feel as if I dominated him, that speaks for itself. Finishing, I wish I could have. But I couldn’t. Vitor is someone that I really don’t know, and I think I’ll have a better time going out there and feeling like I’m at war.”

During this weeks UFC 152 pre-fight media call, UFC light-heavyweight champion, Jon Jones spoke about how he lacked a certain killer instinct when facing Rashad Evans in his last fight. But the champ went on to say that the killer mentality will be back later this month when he faces off with Vitor Belfort at UFC 152.

    Vitor maybe a middleweight but he’s much more aggressive than anyone Jon has faced. Anything is possible.

  5. DMAC says:

    Watch out Jones Vitor got them “fast hands” Lmfao!

  6. Nunya says:

    Vitor is going to be dominated at every aspect. Bring on Alexander after

  7. Secludedly says:

    I just know Vitor is going to last much longer against Jones than he did Anderson. That’s good enough for me. And you never know with Vitor. He’s been having a great career lately aside from the kick Anderson faked him out with. He’s even utilizing more of his BJJ game, and he is pure power. He’s kinda like a two-handed Hendo without the wrestling. I’m not going to be shocked if Vitor KO’s him, but highly doubting it. You never know in MMA. You never know in fighting period. Tyson vs. Douglas for example.

  14. Brend0magic says:

  15. Clay says:

    Jones is the best LHW ever. He will continue to dog walk everyone in the division, while haters promote him and spread his name. Might as well get with it instead of bein a jackass every single fight and sayin “bones will get KO’d” please…
