“I actually like the fact that Jon Jones is looking at me like I was some kind of, you know pop up, quick ‘one and done’ kind of guy, when you know realistically I wanna challenge for the belt. So if he’s gonna overlook me that’s great, because it’s going to catch up with him eventually. I may be the tortoise in this race, but he’s gonna fall down at some point. After I saw Anthony’s fight my coach and I looked at each other and said ‘man, I would like that match up.’ Because really for me it’s weathering the storm, you know. He’s an explosive guy and we all saw what he did to Nogueira in just over a minute. So, you know I think I can weather that storm and I think conditioning is still his issue. I still think if someone pushes him hard, he’s gonna have those same problems that he used to have when he was making 170, and I’d like be the guy to exploit that weakness.”
Responding to some slight disrespect from the champ, Pat Cummins took to his recent slot on Submission Radio to retort and call out a worthy opponent.
