Jon Jones Feels Comfortable With Blueprint to Defeat Lyoto Machida

Jon Jones and Lyoto Machida have the two hardest styles to figure out in the light heavyweight division. When the two meet at UFC 140 it will be Jones looking to defend his UFC title, a title once held by Machida prior to getting knocked out by Mauricio Rua.

Jones feels that the blueprint has been established to beat Machida and all he has to do is follow the plan. Here's Jon explaining just that to Fight News:


From the video:

We're not fighting the undefeated Lyoto Machida anymore. I've watched him lose several rounds now through studying and I just happen to have two coaches that are southpaws now as well so there's a lot of knowledge in my camp about fighting guys with opposite stances. We feel comfortable, we feel as if there's been some blueprints laid out. Obviously, we will come up with our own blueprint, take from what we've seen and make it an even greater defeat. We're excited. We're up for the challenge.

Jones is the favorite in the fight, and rightfully so. But he must keep in mind that having a blueprint and being able to build the house are two different things.
