UFC NEWS – Jon Jones Talks Lyoto Machida: "I understand what makes Lyoto, Lyoto"

“I always knew that I would fight Lyoto one day. Lyoto’s a great opponent, man, he’s game. I think he takes this sport seriously. I think he’s unpredictable, he’s fast. Lyoto loves distance and I love distance but I have the longer limbs and I believe I’m just as fast. So if Lyoto wants to play the distance game with me, I think that’s going to be awesome. … I will defeat Lyoto Machida. I believe that it’s my destiny to be UFC champion for many years.”

    Can’t wait for this fight. I’m pulling for Machida

  2. Joe says:

    ive known you were going to fight lyoto, even before brandon vera! JBJ all day, dont worry the rest of you bjpenn members will hop on this band wagon after he disposes the LHW div, just like GSP and silva did

    • Chris says:

      Because we’re all already on the Silva and GSP bandwagons…right?

    • Michael says:

      I just don’t like Bones. He is a fantastic fighter, but I a Machida fan myself. I’m saying Bones is garbage, just that I don’t care for him much. Same with GSP, I don’t like the guy, but he is solid, and I’m actually a Spider fan although I did boycott buying his fights for awhile because he was just playing games with Thales, and Maia.
      Don’t be an idiot, people are free to support whichever fighters they choose. I’m a BJ Penn fan now, just like I was when he was ruling the LW division. I didn’t become a Shogun fan when he beat Machida, I still follow Machida.

  3. Anthony1994 says:

    I really like Jones but I’m prefer Machida in this fight, I think a loss would also keep Jones in check.

  4. Julius says:

    The longest 10 days this month. DAMN

  5. danriverapv says:

    i believe its you’re destiny to get shut the hell up’d by Lyoto.

    dont even no if thats a phrase haha.

  6. Anayalater says:

    This will definitely be Jonesies toughest matchup of his career…but he will pick Lyoto apart and choke him out!

  7. I think somebody needs spelling lessons.”i think jone cant take a nice clean shit followed by a combo from machida”lmao.So tell me:Who can take a clean shit from Machida followed by a combo?Thats straight up nasty right

  8. “Its my destiny to be the Ufc champion for many years”.That does’nt sound this guy think he’s Alberto Del Rio or

    • magoo says:

      He’s just that confident,and it shows when he’s in the cage!

      • Joe says:

        seriously, what other fighter has ever taken a loss/DQ as good as Jon did????

        especially after watching bellator this weekend and the ref stopped the pellegrino fight due to TKO when the guy clearly TKOed him by multiple blows to the back of the head. lol after watchin that i still cant believe Jon got DQed

        • Ninja Oreo Dollop says:

          He deserved to get disqualified. Those kinds of elbows can make you blind. Besides all these fighters should know the rules before they get in the cage.

        • Brian says:

          This isn’t bellator buddy this is the big boys and jones deserves that Dq. Hes a dirty fighter IMO. Watch his first fight in the UFC Andre had him up against the cage in a bad position where he was not having his way and he kneed Andre in the balls. Then knee him in the balls again Andre threw his hands up to signal the reff and jones laid into him almost knocking him about. He knewhe kneed him in the balls.

    • JB Spencer says:

      Its called confidence, whats he supposed to say: “even if i do beat machida, i dont see myself holding on to this belt for too much longer” ??

    • rocker says:

      JBJ’s not arrogant at all in my opinion, just that he knows he wants. I think he’s well grounded actually, praises accurately his opponents and also mentions that he has weaknesses.. very level headed i’d say

  9. Chris says:

    Do to the fact that Jones is now saying its his destiny to be champion for years he’s gonna lose to Machida. If you noticed during the Jones/Rampage fight Rampage knew what to look for against Jones.Though he still list Rampage showed us Jones game plan can be countered because he doesn’t change. He does the same shit he did in his last 3 fights. Unless he pulls some Anderson Silva shit and does a move alot of people don’t really use well lol

    • Joe says:

      by same shit, you mean every move imaginable? he just pulled a flying triangle last fight lmao

    • Ninja Oreo Dollop says:

      Rampage saw those spinning moves from a mile away. He may have gotten struck more than Jones but he never in any real trouble. Out of the two times he was taken down he got right back up. The second “takedown” he really slipped. Rampage like he said did choke and he never really got in range to drop those bungalows.

  10. win win says:

    What he actually says is “I’m starting to understand what makes Lyoto Lyoto.” There’s a big difference between “I’m starting to understand” and actually knowing. He’ll actually understand when he’s laid out on the canvas by a Lyoto flying crane kick and then has his wrist broken by a Seagal inspired aikido wrist lock.

  11. I saw Jon.Jones kiss a guy in the lips im New York the other day. He then proceeded to put his hand in his pants

  12. Joe says:

    When asked, Segal stated i would not like to see anderson vs. Jon,,, why? cause he knowssss lol, in that interview was he asked about lyoto & Jon??? NOPE

  13. lol says:

    Love both fighters and wont bet money on this. Oh and I hate most you ppl on BJ penn because are dumb focks.

  14. AAxAntonio says:

    should be awesome fight, alot of jones haters, i want the dragon to win to but against jones its very possible that it dont happen.

  15. Ninja Oreo Dollop says:

    Jones forgot to mention that Machida is a proficient counter puncher. Maybe that’s something Greg Jackson and Winklejohn forgot to prepare him for. Watch out for those Japanese leg sweeps…. Jones will the taken down for the first time at UFC 140.

  16. CD says:

    jon jones game plan: spinning back elbow, flying knee, kicking the knees and putting his fingers in machidas face! he’s not as unpredictable as he thinks

  17. JoeLovesJonesDick says:

    Jones will finally take a nice one in the face just like his #1 groupie fag Joe takes nut in the face from his favorite bandwagon champion.

    Dont care who wins

  18. Zack says:

    I hope lyoto tornado kicks him right in his neck

  19. Donnybrook says:

    Two of my fav fighters going at it but with all emotion put to the side my $$’s on Bones.

  20. GRT 3000 says:

    I’m more a Machida fan that a JBJ fan, but I can’t deny JBJ’s talent. He’s been taking out seasoned pros like, like…ho’s! …? ne-way, that being said, if I had a $100 000 to bet? Honestly, I’d put it on the champ.

  21. magoo says:

    Probably the only time you ever liked him. Lol
