Today is the first day of Jon Jones' UFC 165 training camp, where he will look to make the 6th straight defense of his light heavyweight title against Alexander Gustafsson. Now considered as the No. 1 Pound-for-Pound MMA fighter, Jones took to twitter and said he's always "lazy" in between fights. He even has a photo to prove it:
I am the laziest man in the world until it's time to work hard— Jon Bones Jones (@JonnyBones) July 15, 2013
Well maybe not the laziest, I definitely needed time to recover— Jon Bones Jones (@JonnyBones) July 15, 2013
I'm thinking about taking a before picture so you guys can see my level of #skinnyfat a little self-conscious— Jon Bones Jones (@JonnyBones) July 15, 2013
It's definitely not even comparable to the massive weight gain that Mark Munoz had to overcome, but it's indeed a contrast to the final product which will look much like that weigh-in photo above. He still has over 8 weeks to get back in top form though, so it's really nothing to worry about. If you remember from our past "How's Taste My Tweet Tweet?" editions, Jones did look very similar in between bouts against Belfort and Evans.
