Ahead of her UFC title shot against undefeated UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey, Holly Holm has been receiving extra training advice from the arguable pound 4 pound king, Jon Jones.
Jones and Holm are teammates, but from what Holm told media members on the UFC 193 conference call yesterday, Jones has been working with Holm even more.
“We’ll shadow box a little bit and kind of throw kicks and punches at each other, but obviously he’s not going to be sparring with me like he would the big heavyweights. “I love to hear his input and he has been very helpful and instrumental in this fight camp. Sometimes he’ll come to my mitt sessions and have some things that work for my fighting style and just ideas that he has.”
Do you think Jones advice during training camp will be the X-factor for Holm in her fight against Rousey? Sound off below!
