"The (UFC 126) moment was very genuine. I had no clue they were going to do it right then and there. I had no clue Shogun was coming in the Octagon. It was a wonderful feeling and I actually use that feeling I got sometimes in mediation to prepare me for hearing "and new UFC Light Heavyweight champion of the world, Jonny Bones Jones."
"I love that fact that people see something good in me. People see the potential that I have and see that I'm working with my potential. And actually using this talent that I have and not just banking on being an athlete. And I truly believe it's my time, so I feel as if it's already done. And the people who picked me to win, they'll be saying "I told you so."
