UFC 128 Pre-Fight Interviews: Jon Jones


Jon "Bones" Jones' dynamic style and impressive athleticism is quickly captivating a legion of UFC fans, old and new. Only three years into his professional career as a mixed martial artist, Jones has a chance to become the youngest champion in UFC history when he takes on veteran Mauricio "Shogun" Rua for the light heavyweight title at UFC 128 in Newark, N.J., on Saturday night.
"Shogun's biggest weakness is definitely his wrestling and I think his jiu-jitsu is also very overrated."

"I was really surprised that it came so fast. It's been a really quick turn around from the Ryan Bader fight to this title shot but I'm grateful for it and I believe everything happens for a reason."

"I was actually getting a little anxiety about being in the title fight. (Greg Jackson said) Jon listen, it's just another fight. No fight is a big fight. Forget what name he is, his credentials or who he used to fight."

"That's the biggest thing for me and Greg, just humanizing every opponent that I go through. I've really humanized Shogun big time, because I'm a fan of him myself. He's an experienced vet but he has a lot of weaknesses we figured out. All is possible in the Octagon. We're going to go (out there) and get this victory."
