UFC president Dana White says that former UFC light heavyweight champ Jon “Bones” Jones is training like a man possessed for his rematch with current title holder Daniel Cormier.
According to White, Jones is 6-months sober and in the best shape of his life ahead of next month’s UFC 197 pay-per-view event. His words:
“What’s fascinating about Jon Jones right now is if you look at what this guy was doing in the past and how hardcore he’s training now – It’s almost scary,” White said. “The guy who’s never taken it serious is literally taking it serious now. What’s the new Jon Jones going to be like now?”
“He is in his prime right now – his physical fighting prime. He’s never been more serious than he is right now. It’s a scary combination.”
