Jones Injury Happened While Working With Alistair Overeem


Earlier this week fight fans were let down with news that Jon Jones vs. Daniel Cormier was postponed until next year.

Now, in a recent interview with Sherdog.com, Greg Jackson explained some of the circumstances that led to the injury of the champ, Jon Jones.

Check it:

“It’s part of the game, it wasn’t like … somebody went for a flying kick and dislocated [something]. Somebody went for a takedown, [Jones] stepped the wrong way, twisted the wrong way and down he went. He was fighting it, and he just twisted it. And then it just popped.”.

“Alistair’s maybe 240, Jon’s 220. It’s not like he was working with a giant moose. It was just one of those things.”
