Dana White: The new Jon Jones is scary

Jon Jones

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 continued:

“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.”
