Watch Out World -- Jon Jones Joins Greg Jackson's MMA Team

New, comments

From MMA Weekly:

Undefeated UFC light heavyweight Jon Jones is the latest fighter to join Team Jackson's in Albuquerque, N.M., headed by highly sought after trainer Greg Jackson.

Jackson told content partner Tapout Radio, "Jon Jones has joined our team and he's out here training. He's just a pleasure to work with. He's incredibly creative. That he's got so far with his creativity is amazing."

The only downside of this news is that it precludes possible light heavyweight clashes with fellow Team Jackson fighters Rashad Evans and Keith Jardine.

It's also very bad news for everyone else in the LHW division who might have been hoping to capitalize in gaps in Jones' preparation or knowledge since he'd been training with lesser-known teams.
