Rockhold has the task of emulating Jones, and he spoke about making sure DC is always ready:

"I’m pretty the much the most like Jon Jones he's gonna find. So we’re gonna be putting some hard rounds in together like we always do, and I’m not gonna take it easy on him that’s for sure," he said. "Pretty much when we're walking around the gym, I look to try and poke him in the eyes whenever I can. Keep him on his toes, you know."

Jones better beware, the man is looking crisp with his Moe Howard defense!
