UFC 135 Open Workouts Coverage: Jon Jones, Matt Hughes, Josh Koscheck

via cdn0.sbnation.com

MMA Nation's Luke Thomas was on-site at the UFC 135 open workouts today that took place in the MusclePharm facility that Quinton "Rampage" Jackson has called home for a while.  Luke managed to cover a lot of interesting stuff, including Matt Hughes and Josh Koscheck speaking to the media. He was also able to snag an interview with UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones, who explained his bizarre and hilarious radio interview with Luke earlier in the day where he did the whole thing with a British accent.

Hughes talked about whether he wants to continue fighting, the pressure he's been getting from his family to retire, and the possibility of fighting at a catchweight in the future. Koscheck discusses his return after the Georges St. Pierre fight at UFC 124, how he's toned down his usual rhetoric (mostly due to a lack of time), and the possibility of fighting at middleweight. And Jones discusses the earlier interview, having fun in the leadup to his fights, the mutual respect between himself and Jackson, and that Rampage's power "isn't all it's cracked up to be".

You can catch the Jones interview below, and the Koscheck and Hughes videos after the jump.
